Constructing Explanations & Designing Solutions: 1 of the 8 SEP’s in the AZ Science Standards

Date:  Thursday, April 22nd, 4:00 – 5:00 PM

Cost:  Free

Facilitator:  Sara Torres

 Are the explanations and solutions your students are constructing meeting the expectation of this SEP?  Join this webinar to find out.

Description:  A goal of science education is for students to construct scientific explanations that are supported by evidence for the causes of phenomena and design solutions to engineering problems that go beyond tinkering and hands-on construction. During this webinar, participants will determine the role of this SEP in  learning science and be able to describe how this practice progresses throughout a K-12 science curriculum.
