Over fifty educators hosted table presentations at the first ever Elementary STEM Spectacular held on Friday, November 8, 2013 during CAST. Dr. Mary Hobbs, Coordinator for Science Initiatives with the Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) and one of the organizers of the event, estimated that around 350 people attended the nearly two hour long event.
October 4th was the date that brought over eighty science and mathematics teachers together to study the science of racing. The training event was sponsored by Shell, which joined forces with the TRC and the National Energy Education Development Project (NEED). The training was a unique learning opportunity for the teachers in conjunction with the Shell Pennzoil Grand Prix.
The National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project hosted a conference in Albuquerque, New Mexico July 14-18, 2013 for one hundred plus educators that are passionate about energy education. Attendees came from many states, including Texas and some represented the TRC.
In 2012, the Texas Regional Collaboratives (TRC) and TAME worked together on a Shell funded grant and hosted Math and Science Family Nights in the Houston area. The TAME Trailblazer was at each event, providing interactive exhibits aimed at promoting STEM activities to our Texas students.
In a first for the TRC Annual Meeting, participants in this featured session will connect live ship-to-shore with a research expedition led by the International Ocean Drilling Program (IODP) in Southern Alaska and their Education Officer, Alison Mote.
College Station’s Regional Science Collaborative at Texas A&M, under the direction of Dr. Carolyn Schroeder, is proud to announce that eighth-grade science teacher, Stephanie Hanover, has been named to the 2013 Space Foundation Teacher Liaison Program, which is intended to advance space-related endeavors in her classroom.
