“Connecting the Dots” Across Massachusetts to Support K-8 STEM Teaching & Learning

Join Paul Reynolds, founder of the Reynolds Center, and learn how several high-performing nonprofits “connected the dots” through a Mass.-based education innovation cluster to accelerate more engaging STEM learning with younger students (K-8), and are building grant-funded opportunities to bring the Fab@School Maker Studio digital design and fabrication STEM program into districts across the state. 

Boston-based Reynolds Center, and its K-12 educational software partner FableVision Learning, will share how it has built a growing national network around the Fab@School Maker Studio digital design and fabrication STEM learning program for K-8 teachers and students.  With funding from Cisco Foundation and by partnering with United Way of Massachusetts Bay and Merrimack Valley and BoSTEM program partners, Fab@School is now being deployed here across the commonwealth as the Fab@School MaSTEM program. Not only is Fab@School fully aligned to Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards, it also now specifically supports the 2016 Massachusetts Science and Technology/Engineering (STE) Curriculum Framework.

By spring 2017, the 100% grant-funded Fab@School MaSTEM program was deployed to 34 sites, providing - at no charge - the Fab@School Maker Studio web-based software, digital fabrication hardware, professional development, and ongoing support throughout the school year.  Participating districts include: including Lowell Public Schools, Boston Public Schools, Brockton Public Schools, Central Massachusetts Collaborative, Worcester Public Schools, Webster Public Schools, North Adams Public Schools, as well as St John Paul II Schools under the Archdiocese of Boston.

Rounding out the presentation, the Reynolds Center will also share about a national partnership which offers match grant funds to Massachusetts schools and further supporting STEM education. The Fab@School Match Grant is offered by mindSpark Learning and supported through the Morgridge Family Foundation. Attendees will be provided information to apply for the grant.

mindSpark Learning: Create Bravely! with Peter H. and Paul A. Reynolds

Peter and Paul Reynolds, mindSpark Learning and FableVision Learning will deliver a message focused on: learning for the sake of discovery. Creating bravely is about having the courage to challenge your environment, and find new ways to learn that go beyond traditional thinking and curricula. Create Bravely focuses on providing learners of all levels with the confidence to attempt the unexpected, and accept that failure is a part of the creative process -- that it is okay to fail -- and that failure should even be celebrated. By failing, learners grow, find solutions and ultimately discover the ability to do things they previously thought were impossible.

Participants will work together to create strategies that help them tap into their own creativity and use it as an implementable tool that engages their learners with deeper learning. They will also have the opportunity to use and interact with some of the tools FableVision Learning has to offer, such as Fab@School Maker Studio and Animation-ish. Finally, participants will leave the event with strategies learned throughout the morning, and discover creative and implementable solutions for next school year, their daily life and beyond.
