PROM/SE Summer Science Institute

Description

PROM/SE will hold its annual Summer Science Institutes for K-12 science teachers from participating districts. The four-day institutes will be held in Michigan and Ohio. Institute courses are developed around topics of greatest need as identified by data collected from PROM/SE districts including student performance measures and recent teacher surveys. The unifying theme of Systems is a key theme across the PROM/SE summer courses. Systems are also an area where students consistently show a lack of comprehension and teachers identify as a need. The unifying principle is Energy, a topic that has been shown to have many common misconceptions across the K-12 curriculum. PROM/SE worked closely with BSCS and science educators in developing these courses.
