Educator Enrichment (E2) Objectives
Educator Enrichment (E2) The aim of our E2strategy is simple and straightforward: teach to inspire! Our instructors are primarily professionals in the science industry and our workshops are formatted to yield exciting and innovative ways to approach math, science and technology with students, many of whom have limited familiarity with the field or unwarranted beliefs they cannot excel in them! In 24 years working with students, we have developed hands-on activities to assist students and teachers alike learn concepts more easily. Concepts are introduced in a real-world setting and in a very student-engaging manner. Through these unique and effective pedagogical approaches, our workshops allow for “discovery”, not memorization or demonstration; thus bringing learning to life! Scientists, engineers and other technicians bring educators experience through strong content knowledge, real world applications of science, access to valuable resources in the STEM fields, critical and analytical thinking capacities and the ability to teach and mentor students in the “process of inquiry”. Educators will attain an increased awareness of the value of science education as well as a heightened confidence their ability to incorporating math, science and technology into the daily classroom routine.
