About the Verizon explorer lab Professional Development Workshop
MdBio is currently offering a curriculum development opportunity for middle school science teachers to integrate the engineering experience into the classroom. Professional development for teachers will be offered August 1 – 3 and August 10 – 11. These 3 hour workshops will prepare teachers for when the explorer lab comes to your school. Teachers who attend the professional development will receive priority in scheduling their schools for explorer lab visits and will receive a stipend of $30/hour.
During these workshops, teachers will be able to come onto the bus and go through the same experience as their students. This will better acquaint teachers with the content of the experience and provide them with a greater understanding of the material when discussing it with students. The professional development also includes information and demonstrations of activities that teachers can implement to engage students in the classroom. These activities will include how to introduce the engineering design process to your students and how to elaborate and relate the content to your existing science curriculum.
