Want to learn how to incorporate nanotechnology into your existing curriculum? Want to spend two weeks in gorgeous Colorado in the summer? Better yet, want to get paid to do all of this?
NanoTeach is recruiting teachers for a year-long, nationwide pilot test starting in the summer of 2010. Through lessons and experiences that model the three-part Designing Effective Science Instruction (DESI) instructional framework, participants will investigate dynamic nanoscience and technology content (NS&T) content while learning about instructional strategies that support effective science teaching.
Specifically, we are looking for thirty high school science teachers who teach physical science concepts and are looking for ways to energize their teaching with strategies to integrate cutting-edge nanoscience and technology, real-world application, and professional connections that foster meaningful and dynamic teaching and learning.
Participants will receive a $3000 stipend and paid travel and lodging to Denver, Colorado.
