NSHS DaVinci Teachers to Present at MAST Conference and STEM Summit

Teachers leading the Newton South HS DaVinci program — Divya Shannon, Amy Richard and Molly Baring-Gould — will make presentations about this interdisciplinary STEAM program at both the Massachusetts Association of Science Teachers conference on November 2-3 and the Massachusetts STEM Summit on November 14. Their presentation, The daVinci Program — Building a STEAM Community, will focus on the benefits of integrated learning (especially incorporating art) at all stages, from developing a program to application in an individual teacher’s classroom. In this workshop, they will first discuss their motivation, growth, and lessons learned in developing this program, and then they will facilitate discussion among attendees about sample lessons, content, skills required, participants’ other efforts in this area, feedback on the DaVinci presentation, and the recruitment of community partners.
