April 29, 2024 4:47 PM | Anonymous

Are you passionate about the intersection of technology and education? Join us on Thursday, May 16th, from 6-8 pm at The Ripe Tomato in Ballston Spa for an enlightening discussion on how Educational Technology (EdTech) is reshaping the landscape of science education. We are thrilled to welcome Christy Williams from Explore Learning, a leading company in the field of interactive educational simulations.

Gone are the days of passive learning through textbooks and lectures. Today, simulations have evolved into powerful tools that engage students in dynamic exploration and experimentation. Christy will unveil the transformative impact of these simulations, which now offer features like variable manipulation, "what-if" scenarios, data collection, analysis, and even career exploration.

At the heart of this revolution is the commitment to inclusivity and accessibility. Simulations cater to learners of all levels, from advanced students seeking academic challenges to those at risk of falling behind. By immersing themselves in virtual environments and assuming professional roles, students can grasp complex concepts with ease.

Christy, who collaborates closely with the creators of Gizmos, will showcase how these simulations are not just enhancing science classrooms but also paving the way for a more interactive and personalized learning experience. From improving student engagement to providing invaluable assessment tools aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), EdTech companies are driving innovation in education like never before.

Pub Science events like this are not only enriching but also accessible to all. Admission is free, and you're invited to join us for an evening of insightful conversation and professional development. Plus, attendees can earn 2 CTLE hours while enjoying the relaxed ambiance of The Ripe Tomato. Space is limited to 25 participants. Registration opens May 1 at:

Location: The Ripe Tomato, 2721 Route 9, Ballston Spa, NY 12020

Event Schedule:
6:00 pm - 6:45 pm: Gather, order drinks, and food
6:45 pm - 7:45 pm: Presentation and conversation
7:45 pm - 8:00 pm: Wrap up, questions, settle your tab

Don't miss this opportunity to glimpse into the future of science education. Join us, and together, let's harness the power of EdTech to inspire the next generation of innovators.

The Eastern Section is a regional chapter of the Science Teachers Association of New York State (STANYS).
