How does STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) fit in your science curriculum?
NJSTA’s Maitland P. Simmons Memorial Award Committee, in partnership with the Center for Innovation in Engineering and Science Education (CIESE) at Stevens Institute of Technology, and with generous support from PSEG, announces its 2013 Summer Institute.
This five day institute is an encore presentation to the highly acclaimed STEM Institute of 2012. 24 middle school teachers will blend middle school science concepts for renewable energy with hands-on engineering designed to raise awareness of the challenge of using sustainable energy resources to meet world demand. In addition, teachers will explore Problem Based Learning and develop units specifically for their classroom. Each teacher will receive approximately $750.00 worth of materials suitable for teacher demonstrations and student use and receive a one-day registration to the New Jersey Science Convention, where there will be a follow up session.
New Jersey Science Teacher’s eighth annual Maitland P. Simmons Memorial Award Summer Institute is scheduled to be held July 8-12 at Rowan University in Glassboro. Teachers of all middle school sciences are encouraged to apply. The NJ Core Curriculum Content Standards for Science are the foundation for Institute activities, and the program will follow current state guidelines for the introduction and use of technology in the science classroom.
