Through this webinar, learn about a research experience for elementary teachers from rural and reservation communities that helps these educators develop culturally responsive energy engineering education content for their classrooms.
Delivery Method: On Demand
Duration: 1 hour
ASEE Members: Free
For the past two summers, an interdisciplinary team at Montana State University has hosted 23 elementary teachers from rural / reservation communities in an immersive six-week research experience to collaboratively develop culturally responsive and sustaining engineering education within their classrooms. This presentation will discuss the project framework, unique workshops, research experiences and impacts on participants.
Speakers for this webinar are Paul Gannon, Abbie Richards, Becky Hammack, Nick Lux, Sweeney Windchief, Suzi Taylor, Doug Hacker, and Hilary Lozar. These speakers represent Montana State University, Purdue University, the University of Utah, and the Ronan school district and Boys and Girls Club of Mission Valley, Montana.
This webinar is part of a larger series on building community and reflecting to re-envision in engineering education. This material is based on work supported by the National Science Foundation under Grant No. EEC-1733004.
