For educators and K-12 school administrators who are transitioning to Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS), STEM CORE and Academic Extension have partnered to develop UO Real Solutions for NGSS Science Teaching. The self-paced online professional development provides resources, videos, tools, and guided activities to help teachers adapt their lessons for the new vision of science instruction. See the press release in Around the O or visit http://realsolutions.uoregon.edu/ngss/ to learn more.
With support from STEM CORE, the research of UO scientists Dave Sutherland and Alan Rempel from the Department of Earth Sciences was the inspiration for an “IcePosium” event on April 7th that involved every student at Arts and Technology Academy (ATA) Middle School in hands-on activities led by the scientists, a cadre of UO student volunteers, and other community members. See a feature on KEZI news. Read more about the event in Around the O. Learn more about Dr. Sutherland’s research and Dr. Rempel’s research.
