PNNL Announces Next Seminar as Part of its Community Science and Technology Seminar Series
The next seminar in Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series, “Engaging the Future STEM Workforce through their Teachers,” presented by Alison Colotelo, a project manager at PNNL, will take place on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, at 5:00 p.m., via Zoom.
On this webinar, you will learn more about PNNL’s Teacher-Scientist Partnership, which aims to develop the future STEM workforce through the professional development of teachers. In partnership with PNNL researchers, we design a real-life, STEM problem-based immersion experience for the teachers. Teachers embrace the role of “learner” and engage in hands-on activities that show them how science is done at a national laboratory – in teams and across disciplines. Throughout the experience, PNNL’s Office of STEM Education works with teachers to connect the activities to their classroom and state learning standards. Teachers leave the experience with tools to integrate problem-based learning into their classrooms, in turn inspiring their students to pursue careers in STEM fields.
Pacific Northwest National Laboratory’s Community Science and Technology Seminar Series was launched to help the general public better understand and explore how science transforms our world.
