One-Week Summer Session Provides Scientific Experiment Ideas & College Credit
Published : Thursday, May 17, 2018 | 12:42 PM
A complimentary, one-week summer workshop running from July 30 through August 3 is being offered to teachers by ASM International’s Materials Education Foundation and hosted by Don Bosco Technical Institute (Bosco Tech). The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) aligned session is geared primarily for middle school and high school science teachers and focuses on developing simple, low-cost experiments that can be integrated into existing lesson plans while introducing students to STEM professions. Art, math and community college instructors and student teachers also are invited, as space allows.
“That our school can partner with ASM International to assist instructors aligns perfectly with our teaching model,” said Bosco Tech Principal Xavier Jimenez. “Equipping teachers to better share the wonders of STEM fields means that more young people will become engaged and may consider increasingly in-demand and technology-driven professions.”
The course offers four continuing education units (CEUs) and demonstration materials and daily lunch are included. Two optional graduate level credits are available through the University of Missouri-Kansas City. The workshop runs from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Monday through Thursday and 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. on Friday. To learn more, visit www.asmfoundation.org or apply at http://bit.ly/2HMLirm.
