St. Norbert College faculty, in conjunction with Aldo Leopold Elementary School, will present at the Progressive Education Network (PEN) National Conference in Los Angeles on Friday, Oct. 11. The conference brings together educators from across the nation to promote progressive education and connect, support and learn from one another.

In collaboration with Aldo Leopold Elementary School principal Trina Lambert and kindergarten teacher Melisa Messenger, St. Norbert College director of academic technology Krissy Lukens and assistant professor of teacher education Christopher Meidl will discuss the use of STEM equipment in K-5 curriculum as a means of playful learning.

The purpose of the Progressive Education Network is to support the principles of progressive education and influence the course of the national dialogue about early childhood, elementary and secondary education in America. PEN seeks to establish a nationwide network of educators committed to sharing teaching practices that foster in students a strong motivation for learning and the agency for social activism. Of primary importance to the organization is the involvement, leadership and participation of teachers.
