We are pleased to invite your student to participate in the See Blue Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Camp June 11 – 15, 2012 at the University of Kentucky. The week-long day camp is designed to help students explore and integrate the STEM disciplines through hands-on projects and real world applications.
Dates: June 11 – 15, 2012
Ages: All students entering 6th – 9th grades for the 2012-2013 school year
Where: University of Kentucky, Mining and Mineral Resources Building
Activities: Instruction in engineering, mathematics, neurobiology, astronomy, and LEGO robotics. There will be a robotics competition on the final day.
Systems Thinking for Sustainability is multi-disciplinary course (architecture, engineering, marketing, and STEM education) that will offer UK students a unique opportunity to develop projects in sustainability as members of collaborative teams. Together, these teams will tackle sustainability issues involving complex systems where economic, social, and technical factors interact in dynamic and challenging ways. Team-taught by faculty from four colleges (Education, Engineering, Business, Design), STFS will be an essential preparation to the student’s senior capstone projects and application of content to K12 classrooms.
I am excited and happy to be a part of this fabulous project! Stay tuned for more!
Senate Bill 1 (2009) has a new name…Unbridled Learning: College and Career Readiness for All. As in everything education, I have acronym’d it…UBL. At University of Kentucky, we’re working on creating a resource page for everything around UBL/SB1. We have the basic structure and basic links up now: http://sites.education.uky.edu/sb1/
We’ll be adding lots more to it in the coming weeks. Enjoy!
