STEM Educator Workshop Dayton
POSTED ON: Friday, October 20, 2017 8:00 AM by Angela Moran
STEM Center faculty provided a 12-hour workshop for 24 teachers from 14 different schools, predominantly in the West Dayton, Ohio area. Teachers built and launched underwater robots and practiced hands-on activities related to Navy engineering on Oct 20 and 21 during a STEM educator workshop hosted by the Trotwood Madison Schools.
Sponsored by the Office of Naval Research and DoD STEM, the workshop was designed to provide the educators with hands-on, project-based training in current technical content areas with real world relevance. "I will be using these activities both in my math class and my after school math and science club. I also plan to share these activities with other teachers," said Mary Webb from North College Hill Middle School.
Emphasis was also placed on building the STEM community of teachers and technical personnel in the local area. USNA STEM was joined by volunteers from University of Dayton Research Institute and UD School of Engineering, as well as local industry partner, Faraday Technology Corporation, and provided activities in chemistry, sensors, circuits, robotics, corrosion, sound and light, hydraulics, and engineering design applications.
