Have you ever been asked, “When will we ever use the stuff?” Let us help you answer that question. Engineering is the real life application of mathematics and science, and as a career affords wonderful opportunities in a number of areas. Technology is growing at a rapid rate and your students will be excited about these new developments. As they explore engineering, the application of the basics they are learning in high school come into focus.
The Objectives of this workshop are:
- To establish a long-term partnership between high school teachers and the U of U College of Engineering
- To show teachers demonstrations and hands-on activities that can be linked to core standard objectives that U of U undergraduates can bring to classrooms
- To guide the development of curriculum-based modules and lesson plans that can be used in classrooms to educate students about the applied use of math and science in careers in engineering.
In this workshop we will discuss and demonstrate student run projects for across many different disciplines of engineering. As attendees we will work together to link these demonstrations to curriculum standards and begin to develop lesson plans that could be used in your class. Each attendee will need to complete a lesson plan outside of the workshop. Upon submission of a completed lesson plan you will be awarded the USOE credit. It is our goal that all attendees of the workshop will receive a book of the lesson plans that the group develops. We will also provide assistance in rounding up the materials needed to run the demonstration or activity in your classroom.
Form will be here when registration opens.
