Two Great New Ways for Sections to Engage in
Part 1: 1900-1950:
AIAA Educator Academy!
Do you ever wish your local schools taught AIAA
approved aerospace curricula in grades 3-12? Well, now they can, if your
section engages them in using one of the AIAA's brand new Educator Academy
curriculum modules. Come find out how! This presentation introduces the
Educator Academy, highlighting the three exciting inquiry-based modules, Space
Weather Balloon, Mars Rover Celebration, and Electric Cargo Plane; and
provides details on how to adopt the Academy as one of your Section's major
STEM K-12 Outreach Programs.
Part 2: 2000-2130
Engineers as Educators Train the Trainers Workshop
region looking for a great way to engage in STEM outreach? Is your section
ready to inspire students by hosting your own Engineers as Educators workshop
for your local professional members? In this Train the Trainers
workshop, participants will learn how to be instructors for our Engineers as
Educators program, allowing those who are interested in coordinating their own
section/region Engineers as Educators events to learn about basic pedagogical
skills such as developing audience engagement, probing or comprehension, and
good strategies for teaching with manipulatives. Participants will also learn
the 'nuts and bolts' of organizing this workshop, such as room requirements,
the registration process, event timelines, etc.
