Friday, 07. June 2019, Black Rock Canyon Nature Center, STEAM Creativity Inspired by Joshua Tree National Park Spring 2019 (Education 441 – 1.5 Units)

The natural world has been perfecting materials, structures, and shapes for billions of years. Wherever there is life, there are organic structures that help with survival and efficiency. There is so much to learn from these engineering marvels. The structures and patterns in all that can be found at the Joshua Tree National Park is a boundless source for creative inspiration. This hands-on class will explore how, if you take the time to look, the natural world offers creative ideas that can spark human ingenuity. Participants will walk away with concrete ideas to take back to their K-12 classrooms. In addition, participants will develop and discuss connections to the Next Generation Science Standards, Common Core State Standards, and California’s Environmental Principles & Concepts through a learning sequence plan.
This class earns 1.5 college units from University of California, Riverside Extension.
