Our annual Arizona MESA Advisor Training Institute (MATI) is an event that provides educators with an opportunity to explore, share, practice and improve essential skills that STEM educators need to support independent inquiry. Lead by MESA's STEM advisors and staff, these workshops will also introduce educators to the Arizona 2018 MESA Day Book of Challenge Specifications as well as related curricular tools and skill-focused activities that are aligned with national standards (NGSS, CCSS). Some workshops will provide short, hands-on, creative experiences in the engineering design process that you can implement with your students.
Sessions will include presentations from MESA partners including QESST, Women In Science and Engineering, Xerocraft Makerspace, and special presentations by the UA Institute of the Environment, and the OSIRIS-REx mission. Topics will include competition changes, recruitment strategies, MESA program ideas and activities, Arduino programming, and preparing for the national competition.
Attending advisors will be provided a STEM Resource Kit to support general STEM activities presented and to assist students in taking on the design challenges.
Please note that Friday's lunch and Saturday's breakfast (continental) and lunch, will be provided.
We hope you will attend, share your insights about STEM education, and help grow MESA's community of professional STEM educators.
