EduChange President Catherine Saldutti and Dr. Sarah Fankhauser of Oxford College of Emory University are hosting free, live, virtual PD for middle school and high school teachers anywhere in the world! Our exciting collaboration with the Journal for Emerging Investigators (JEI), founded by Dr. Fankhauser, supports secondary students by first preparing them with PBL, experimental and engineering design practices. This PD offers tools to guide students in the early stages of their designs, and students can submit their completed designs to JEI for feedback to ensure they are on the right track before the experiment or prototyping begins. Of course, this supports a higher-quality end product: the submitted manuscript. Designed specifically for middle and high school, students get the full experience of scientific peer review, and if accepted to the journal they get their paper published online! Papers may be submitted at any time of year. ALL aspects of S-T-E-M welcomed.
Attend this session to meet Catherine and Sarah and receive resources to get students started! Perfect for research courses, STEM projects and capstones.
