Want to offer your students a hands-on science
experience but lack access to a well-equipped lab? Try a field trip to a museum.
Across the country, Tech museums and science centers are working to provide the
kind of fun, interactive experiences that enliven classroom learning.
IT giant Hewlett-Packard is spending $1 million on an effort to join together schools, colleges and universities, and nonprofit educational groups to work on STEM learning. Each of five "sandboxes of innovation," or consortiums, will tackle challenges that range from teacher training to online study and grid computing.
It's still not too
late to join ASEE's full-day workshop, "Discovering Engineering in the
Classroom," to learn great ways to inspire students about engineering, math,
and science. This energizing, highly informative event introduces teachers
to innovative engineering education lessons, best practices, and take-away
tools. Participating Kentucky
teachers will be eligible for continuing professional education credits; out-of-state
teachers will receive a certificate to use in seeking credits through their own
state authorities. We hope to see you there!
