The University of Alaska Anchorage Resilience and Adaptive Management Group (RAM) received a NASA Space Grant to host training workshop this spring for local teachers to introduce them to new ways to educate students in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics, or STEM.
An important piece of the workshop series is a field trip that brings together 135 K–12 students and 19 teachers from across the Anchorage School District to UAA’s ConocoPhillips Integrated Science Building for hands-on activities.
Planetarium Shows, Chemistry and Microbiology Demonstrations, Geomatics Mapping, Scanning Electron Microscope Demonstration
Please see the attached workshop agenda for a complete list of hands-on activities.
