Teachers in grades K-12 are invited to attend these full-day workshops exploring firsthand how the components of three-dimensional science learning integrate into a cohesive educational experience.

Each Live Lab will explore:the use of phenomena as a framework for inquiry; how the Crosscutting Concepts can be explicitly taught through each Live Lab; what the Science and Engineering Practices look like in action; how the NYS Science Learning Standards can be bundled to form cohesive storylines.

COST: $450 PER DISTRICT(PAID BY DISTRICT) FOR ALL OF THE LIVE LABS SERIES for members of the School Improvement CoSer. | Come to one or come to all… (unlimited district participation in all of the Live Labs during the 1819 school year for members of the school improvement CoSer.)

- The Rubik's company offers loans of free cubes for your classroom, and free materials for using cubes to enhance STEM education at all levels, go to youcandothecube.com. Most of the classroom activities do not require that you can solve the cube.

- There are likely students in your school who already know how to solve the cube, so you can be the adviser of a club or program without being proficient in the cube yourself, although you may enjoy learning to solve it along with your students. We will learn the mathematical notation that is used in the algorithms, and how to help your students follow a manual to solve the cube step by step.
- On Saturday, May 11th, 1-4pm, Bard College is hosting a Rubik's Cube Team Competition for K-12 students. There are 3 categories, K-5, 6-8, 10-12, and all students on a team must have a coach (usually a parent or teacher) and be from the same school. Here is more information:

50. Four Perfect Pebbles - My Holocaust Story

Program: Educational Resources

Dates: 6/6/2019

A Message of Perseverance, Determination, Faith, and Hope

Holocaust speaker, Marion Blumenthal Lazan’s unforgettable memoir recalls the devastating years that shaped her childhood.

Following Hitler’s rise to power, the Blumenthal family — father, mother, Marion, and her brother, Albert — were trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon thereafter it was occupied by the Nazis. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps that included Westerbork in Holland and the notorious Bergen-Belsen in Germany. Though they all survived the camps, Walter Blumenthal, Marion’s father, succumbed to typhus just after liberation.

It took three more years of struggle and waiting before Marion, Albert, and their mother at last obtained the necessary papers and boarded ship for the United States. Their story is one of horror and hardship, but it is also a story of courage, hope, and the will to survive.

Participants will be notified of location.
