The 2020 Detour Continues

Detour, pause, pivot—the need to innovate continues as the pandemic continues to require social distancing. At Wind & Oar, the good news is the pause has allowed for deeper partner collaborations and creative ways to engage learners. Still, no doubt about it, we all look forward to in-person project based learning in the classroom and in the shop. Communications, creativity, critical thinking, and collaboration are all enhanced when we work together in teams!
On the horizon... 3 partnerships vital to continued transformation of STEAM education.

Inspiring STEAM Learners With Hands-on Minds-on Education

Did you know that Sunday, November 8th was National STEM/STEAM Day?

Wind & Oar celebrates STEAM learning every day: 

Building a wooden boat from scratch is an innovative platform for exploring STEAM skills. Each step is an opportunity to teach and reinforce science, technology, engineering, art, and math.

Math99: Makerspace Mathematics Comes to PCC

Wind & Oar is collaborating with PCC via a National Science Foundation grant to design and implement MATH 99. This new remote, hands-on course begins in January 2021 and will be guided by specially trained peer facilitators.  
The collaborating team was selected to present a preview workshop at this year's Association of American Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) Conference on Transforming STEM Higher Education on November 8th!
Kudos to the team! And be on the lookout for more about this innovative approach to math for STEM career candidates.
