The Tufts Center for Engineering Education and Outreach (CEEO) invites
you to the 5th annual LEGO Engineering Symposium May 24-26, 2011 at
Tufts University in Medford, Massachusetts, USA.
The LEGO Engineering Symposium aims to bring together educators that
want to explore using LEGO MINDSTORMS to teach STEM concepts. This
year's symposium's theme is Pushing the Envelope of STEM Learning.
Speakers will include researchers in science education, leading K-12
teachers, maverick Mindstorms users, and other folks pushing the
boundaries of technologies for supporting STEM education.
We will be offering six development labs this year:
I. Seeing the Science/Engineering in Children's Thinking.
II. Integrating Engineering & Literacy.
III. SAM (Stop Action Movie Making) - Tools for Children to Create
Representations of their Ideas.
IV. Labview Education Edition - The Next Generation of Programming.
V. Supporting the Development of Engineering Design Skills in K-12.
VI. Physics Glasses: Augmented Reality and Other Fun Things with
Development labs are an opportunity for participants to learn,
discuss, and develop ideas. They are different than traditional
workshops in that participants spend time discussing and developing
