||Two-week intensive session devoted to the underlying ideas of nanotechnology using Problem-based Learning techniques. Stipends of $200 per day, travel allotment, meals, housing, and 45 hours of PGP points are all provided.
Summer session dates are tentatively June 9-20th. We'll begin Monday morning at 9:00 a.m. Accommodations check-in begins Monday morning and continues throughout the day on June 9th. Check-in for the second week begins Monday morning June 16th. The second week will end Friday, June 20th at 1:30 p.m.
In the 2014-2015 school year, teacher participants in Research Goes to School will provide leadership for their departments or schools by delivering professional development sessions on Problem-based Learning and Nanotechnology.
On-going support will be provided through monthly webinars where teachers can share ideas, experiences and actual lesson plans. Twice during the academic year, fall and spring semesters, a Virtual Field Trip will be available for your students. They will interact in real-time with one of the scientists from the summer workshop. We will also provide a hub site where all workshop information and resources will be housed, including recorded copies of Virtual Field Trips.
Surveys, focus groups, and questionnaires will be used throughout the year to help us develop the best-practice model for delivering grand challenge research topics into high school classrooms.
Applications are closed for this year.
