Do you know any K12 teachers in the Greater Boston area? If so, please help us get the word out about the upcoming K12 education workshop, to be held in conjunction with the ComSciCon national workshop this June.
The application closes May 15, so please help us reach interested teachers today!
This workshop provides teachers with an opportunity to collaborate with graduate students from around the country to create innovative science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) curricula for the K12 classroom (or informal learning environment). It will take place at the Microsoft NERD Center in Cambridge, MA on Sunday, June 15, 2014, as part of the communicating science (ComSciCon) workshop for STEM graduate students.
Astrobites provides a resource for undergraduate classrooms, making cutting edge research in astronomy accessible to college students. We are looking for innovative and enthusiastic leaders in K12 STEM education to do the same for younger students, and in all fields of science. The workshop will be the first step in this effort–a day of presentations and discussions focused on improving STEM learning in the classroom and writing sessions where teachers and graduate students can combine their expertise. The participants together will produce usable curriculum from current cutting edge research to allow teachers to bring real data into their learning environments.
