Wearable Research for In-Service STEM Teachers
2019 RET WRIST Spring Workshop
Date and Time: 8:30 AM - 12:50 PM, Saturday, April 6, 2019.
Location: Peter Kiewit Institute (Scott Campus, University of Nebraska Omaha)
As part of our efforts to broaden K-12 computer science education, we invite local teachers of 6th through 12th graders in Computer Science (CS), Information Technology (IT), and other STEM-related areas to attend a one-day workshop on Wearable Research for In-Service STEM Teachers (WRIST) – a part of the NSF funded Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program at UNO. In this workshop, participants in our six-week immersive RET summer project in 2018 will present their development of CS and IT related course modules and lesson materials, and share their experiences in delivering these modules in their classrooms. Teachers who participate in this workshop will receive $200 stipend.
