Where you find inspiration for tech in your classroom?

Over March Vacation, I took advantage of the Teacher Partner Program at Museum of Science, and came home with new ideas for tech in the classroom.

M, Uncle B, and I spent hours checking out new exhibits, like Chocolate, as well as the good old T-Rex and Lightning Show that I remember from field trips when I was a kid.

Some of the best PD happens when I’m with M. Anything that gets this 5 year old excited about doing and creating is sure to be a hit in the classroom! And we spent the most time in three exhibits:

Building satellites out of recycled materials. The Museum had two makeshift wind tunnels set up, and M loved trying to put just enough lift and weight into her satellite so it would hover at the right height.

Being mesmerized by silver balls in the gravity well in the Theater of Electricity and Energized! exhibit, and exploring the many ways energy makes our world go.

Watching Baby chicks hatching in the Hall of Human Life.

It was a day full of inspiring ideas to bring back to our classrooms. Where do you find your inspiration?
