We are recruiting teachers from schools in Baltimore, Denver, Indianapolis, Memphis and throughout the state of Wyoming to participate in a study funded by the National Science Foundation. The “Bessie Coleman Project: Using computer modeling and flight simulation to create STEM pathways” builds upon our previous robotics and game design project where we reached nearly 1,000 students in Wyoming and Pennsylvania.
Teachers will take a short professional development course to learn the skills needed to lead STEM clubs on computer modeling and game design. Then they will lead their students in a one-week online module. Stipends will be provided for PD and participation as an instructional leader.
Pending school district approval, teachers and students will be invited to participate in STEM camps to learn how to fly drones to collect community-based data in summer 2021.
Professional Development Required – January 2021
