High school teachers are invited to Central Community College-Columbus July 14-16 for a fun and creative professional development opportunity.
Participants will learn about process instrumentation and control, a CCC mechatronics pathway, and get hands-on with demonstrations and lessons they can take back to their classroom. They will:
- Build their own instrumentation trainer ($600 approximate value) to keep and use in their classroom.
- Network with other teachers to write lessons relating to process instrumentation and control.
- Interact with a panel of industry leaders and current mechatronics students.
- Opportunity to work with visiting mechatronics instructor Doug Laven from South Central College in Minnesota.
Participants will receive:
- A trainer with lesson ideas to engage students in STEM.
- Valuable insight into high demand technical careers.
- Lunch and a $110 daily stipend.
This opportunity is possible thanks to a National Science Foundation grant.
The registration deadline is May 1, but seats are limited and the workshop will be filled on a first-come, first served basis. Dorm rooms are available to those traveling a far distance.
