Sustainability & Engineering Education
Teach the Teacher – Building a Sustainable World Workshop
In its 5th year, this program is now a collaboration with UCLA’s CenterX for Teachers. Dr. Sanchez has built new sustainability and engineering modules around the Next Generation Science Standards that showcases SSOE faculty expertise and makerspaces.
Recruitment focuses primarily on Western PA middle school teachers to help them integrate engineering and sustainability modules for their classrooms. The program indirectly engages about 2000 students in the SW PA region. After surveying the teachers, over half of them serve students on free-reduced lunch. 93% of teachers shared that they would be incorporating these engineering modules into their classrooms with 100% of them recommending this workshop to their peers and colleagues. Below are links to some of the modules we built.
