Instructors learn about Alternative Energy

Chicago, September 18, 2013— Once again Scientists for Tomorrow will be partnering with community organizations to begin providing high quality informal STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) after school programming to the youth.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, thirty-eight participants came to the Scientists for Tomorrow Professional Development, to learn the lessons on Alternative Energy; a module developed by Columbia College Chicago staff. The ten lessons are designed to teach STEM through hands on activities for middle and upper grade students.

Each instructor went through a rigorous course, so they can teach the lessons at their sites. When the class was done, the participants took their products home to have an example.

The professional development is designed to give future Scientists for Tomorrow instructors the opportunity to gain the skill necessary to teach STEM in a classroom setting. Also, it allows participants to share and learn ideas from experienced instructors.
