#060-15 ANNAPOLIS, Md. – Roughly 125 elementary, middle, and high school STEM educators from the D.C. metropolitan area will attend a day-long STEM Educator Training (SET) Sail Workshop at the U.S. Naval Academy Saturday, Sept. 26, from 8 a.m. until 4 p.m.
This project-based learning workshop offers teachers an opportunity to engage more fully in their educational fields by exploring and testing ideas in a creative hands-on environment. Experiments and learning assessments are led by faculty and staff members from a number of Naval Academy STEM departments. Teachers are also encouraged to share best practices and application methods. New for this year, Maryland teachers who attend two or more Naval Academy STEM workshops will receive Continuing Professional Development credit from the Maryland State Department of Education.
The event is free for participants and workshops offered will include engineering design, hands-on math, programming, physics, chemistry, and learning outside of the classroom. All events are held at the Naval Academy in the academic laboratories and classrooms.
