Materials science camp for teachers: re-energizing the classroom
For the past five years, the Princeton Center for Complex Materials has trained more than 150 teachers during a weeklong, hands-on summer immersion program in Princeton's state-of-the-art laboratories. Teachers learn materials science and engineering techniques that they then bring back to thousands of students in the classrom.
PCCM is a National Science Foundation-funded Materials Science and Research Center at Princeton University dedicated to pushing the frontiers of complexity in materials science. The materials science teachers camp is taught by Princeton faculty and by master teachers and is co-sponsored by the Materials Information Society.
This video features Richard Register, chair of chemical and biological engineering at Princeton, and Daniel Steinberg, educational outreach director for the Princeton Institute for the Science and Technology of Materials.
Applications for this free weeklong training camp are now being accepted for the summer of 2010.
