Professional Development

Providing workshops to support and equip teachers. 

Upcoming Professional Development Workshops

Square One provides cutting edge, and best practice supported professional development workshops. Each workshop comes with non-consumable supplies to immediately deliver the quality programming to students for years to come.

Masters of Mobility

Teachers have the opportunity to introduce connected vehicle technology, a leading edge mobility career path, through Arduino and Raspberry Pi based training.  Through the use of a unique 3D printed robotic platform and sensor kit, students develop experiments and gain coding skills.

Offer your students DIY Neuroscience after training with our partners at Backyard Brains!  Help us launch their latest offering of hands-on neuroscience sponsored by the National Institute of Health.

Backyard Brains is excited to offer educators from K-12 the learning tools and resources they need to introduce students to the fundamentals of neuroscience! Participants will be introduced to a NGSS-aligned phenomenon neuroscience curriculum. Participants will first engage in an introductory lesson on reaction time, create their own model of the nervous system, and then explore the Neuron Spikerbox, which allows you to record living neurons and see Action Potentials on student smartphones or laptops.

Educators for 3-12 grade youth, with an interest in hands-on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines as they apply to the marine environment are invited to attend this exciting 2-day workshop that provides a truly unique educational opportunity.

Participants will receive an instruction manual, materials and support to design, engineer and build a fully functional underwater remotely operated vehicle or ROV.   STEM skills and activities presented in this workshop support standards and benchmarks in science, engineering, math and technology. Each team will receive lessons, design and build a fully functional ROV complete with control box, power source, and optical system valued at over $800.

Participants pay for their own travel expense.

Workshop Overview

These workshops represent the next steps in the underwater remotely operated vehicle (ROV) design and building progress. Square One’s intent is to provide a resource for teachers who wish to integrate a higher degree of technology and sophistication into their ROV program. Embracing the digital world requires a different thought process. Once the digital foundation is laid, a whole new avenue of motor control, communication and data collection is available for the ROV builder.

These workshops should be taken sequentially.

See Calendar Page for dates….

Target Participants: 3rd –12th grade educators in science, technology, engineering and mathematics or any other discipline that has interest in a great degree of technology in the ROV design and building process.
