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
