SUNY Maritime June 2013

The STEM Educator Course: Middle School I is $150 and includes an 8 hour professional development/training, materials, and a personal copy of the 132 page Reach Educator Guide for Middle School Modules 1-10 (retail $59.95). Educators should bring a bagged lunch. Upon completion attendees will receive a US Sailing STEM Educator Course certificate and formal educators will receive a certificate for professional development hours.

After attending the STEM Educator Course, a full day training on US Sailing’s science, technology, engineering and math curriculum, I was highly impressed with our instructor. The modules in the curriculum¬†provide hands-on experiences for students to learn about the science and engineering behind sailing,¬†an abundant list of web resources that tie in with each lesson, and an effective sequence of lessons, so that they each build on each other. I would highly recommend this program for any classroom or program that is looking to incorporate hands-on experiences when learning about math, technology, and science! -Meghan Dutton
