K-12 Summer 2020 High School STEM Teacher Workshop, STRIDE/Tennessee Tech (YR3)

The Summer STEM Teacher workshop will focus on providing background information and material on transportation subjects for 15 high-school mathematics and/or science teachers. The material and tools are designed to help these teachers incorporate transportation-based learning objectives into their classroom lessons. During the workshop, the participating teachers will have contact time with both STEM teaching experts and engineering faculty and students with transportation expertise to provide a well-rounded learning experience. The teachers will attend three workshop events. The teachers will be guided to develop a transportation topic lesson between their second and third workshops. The workshops will be led by the STEM Center and the College of Education faculty with through collaboration of the College of Engineering faculty and student at Tennessee Tech University. The participating teachers may work collaboratively if appropriate to develop additional lessons that can be incorporated into to their classroom teaching. It is anticipated that support resources (supplies) will need to be purchased to support the effort and to provide the necessary material to the teachers. The support resources will be stored within the Lending Library at the Oakley STEM Center at Tennessee Tech University and teachers can check out the support resources—free of charge—to use during the administrations of their lessons. A preliminary schedule and agenda for the Summer 2020 STEM High School Teacher Workshop is attached.
