Melissa Fernandez, Instructional Supervisor of Technology Education & Industrial Education for Miami-Dade County Public Schools, stated "This professional development did an amazing job integrating science, math and engineering concepts with a hands-on approach."
At the request of the Miami-Dade and surrounding county schools, twenty five educators from this area in Florida attended the STEM Educator Training in Hands-on Project Based Learning on January 23 at the William H. Turner Technical Arts High School.
Professors Patrick Moran and Angela Moran offered topics in sensors, circuits, corrosion and electrochemistry, mechanics, and chemistry to the group with a focus on multidisciplinary STEM topics as well as a module in engineering design to meet current educational standards. Additional emphasis was placed on building the STEM community of teachers in the local area.
According to Peguy Vincent from John F. Kennedy Middle School, "I now have a place to get ideas and add new resources in gathering activities." Heah Krigger of Mandarin Lakes Academy added, "It made me more excited about teaching the same concepts in interesting ways that apply to the real world."
