News From STAO2016: STAOPlayground

There are many changes afoot and we are excited to share them with you! We have added the STAOPlayground to this year’s program.

What is it? The STAOPlayground is a highly interactive space designed to allow participants to explore and experience science as their students do in the classroom.

How does it work? This is an opportunity to explore how hands-on experiences can be connected to curriculum. The STAOPlayground will feature a makerspace and special presentations throughout the day. Participants will be able to move freely between playground stations and explore the activities at their own leisure.

How is the STAOPlayground different from an exhibitor booth? The STAOPlayground focuses on making connections between hands-on activities and the science curriculum.

What is the schedule of the STAOPlayground? The STAOPlayground is open from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Thursday and Friday and from 10:15 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Saturday. Where can I find more information? Visit the STAOPlayground webpage.
