Bringing the Smithsonian to You—Full STEAM Ahead!

Did you know the Smithsonian isn’t just one museum—it’s 19 museums, 9 research centers and the National Zoo? Join Smithsonian educators as they showcase the variety of different online programs and STEAM resources available to K-12 mentors, teachers, students and their families. We'll look at how the Smithsonian examines content themes from an interdisciplinary lens and how to incorporate these tools into your programming.

Smithsonian Quests—Connecting Youth with the Smithsonian through Digital Badges

The Smithsonian’s digital badging program offers students a way to explore their interests, build skills and try out new roles through project based-learning activities, called “Quests”. In this session, we’ll explore the interdisciplinary online program and learn more about digital badging as a larger ecosystem of online learning.
