STEAM Writing Residencies deepen whatever your students are studying in science, at any grade level, to help them find connections between Science and English Language Arts and strengthen their writing skills across the curriculum. Choose from ecosystems, landforms, animal adaptations, the water cycle, chemistry, biology and physics—or talk with Mimi to design your own science-based STEAM Writing Residency. One- to three-day STEAM Writing workshops for teachers and students are also available.
Both in-person and virtual (live and pre-recorded) options are available for this program.
