NSF RET Teachers Program Presented at ASEE National Conference
CIVS Researcher John Moreland presented at the annual American Society for Engineering Education (ASEE) conference in Baltimore, MD on June 28. The research poster focused on the 2022-23 year of the ongoing “Research Experiences for Teachers” program, funded by the National Science Foundation (NSF).
The 6-week summer program and follow-up academic-year activities give teachers from around Northwest Indiana the opportunity to learn how to use advanced computer simulation and visualization tools, take part in research related to the steel industry and power generation, and develop curriculum to relate their research experiences back to their students during the regular school year. CIVS recently welcomed a new group of teachers for the 2023-24 year of the program, which began June 12. Some of the returning teachers recently took part in a discussion panel designed to relate their lessons learned and help mentor new teachers.
