3147. The Scientific Industry for Teachers (3 s.h.) (Formerly: SCI-S 0363.)
(Formerly: SCI-S 0363.)
This course exposes science teachers to industry and industrial related operations in situ where teachers can see and learn how science and scientific principles that they teach in their classrooms are applied in non-academic settings and how our economy is affected by these industries. Teachers will meet and talk with non-academic scientists, to observe them “at the bench,” in action to learn the importance of the use of the laboratory and modern technology in applying the very principles that they, the teachers, teach in their classes.
