A Day of Virtual PD and Exploring Citizen Science: ScIC5 Unconference presented by PocketLab
WALT DISNEY IMAGINEERING with Josh Gorin - S.T.E.A.M Powered: Inside Walt Disney Imagineering: Josh explained that "Imagineering is the group within the Walt Disney Company that conceives, designs and builds all the physical experiences around the world... working to make the impossible possible and to bring fantastic stories, worlds, and characters to life". He shared his journey to Imagineering, and how Imagineers, like kids, are curious about the world. This journey was made possible through educators who supported multidisciplinary projects and embraced the value of connecting subjects through STEAM. Here are the 3 principles to help guide a person to success in Imagineering:
"HANDS-ON SCIENCE IN 2021" PANEL DISCUSSION
CITIZEN SCIENCE HAPPY HOUR
Something that was new at this conference was that at the breaks we were treated with short videos from Hooked on Science. These demos were quick and easily reproducible, but the videos are so well done you might just want to sit back and let Jason Lindsey do the teaching! Find these and so many other resources by going to the PocketLab Resource page!
