Maker InspirED with Stuntman Steve Wolf
Friday, June 22, 2018 12-5pm
For the third annual, Maker InspirED, Please join us for an afternoon where STEM and Maker Education Collide June 22nd 12PM – 5PM at Maker InspirED, sponsored by Cerner. Our session will start with a networking and activity brainstorming opportunity with fellow maker educators. Share your favorite activities and learn about what other educators are doing in their classrooms or makerspaces. Light snacks will be provided.
Special guest Steve Wolf is a Hollywood stunt- and special-effects coordinator, an educator who makes science exciting, and an inspiring figure who gained success through perseverance.
Motorcycle jumps require a basic understanding of trajectory. A child can understand the physics behind pulleys used to hoist Spider-Man or the chemistry of explosions used to destroy the bad guys—and Wolf makes it easy and fun. He visits schools to teach the science behind stunts and special effects and lets students lift their teachers with pulleys to add hands-on activities to enhance their understanding of basic principles they need to master science and to score well on their standardized tests.
He has given the keynote address to the National Science Teachers Association (NSTA) where he received the “STEM Presenter of the Year” award, and frequently appears as a science expert on shows for Discovery, History, A&E, Bravo, and the Science Channel.
