Research Goes to School
Join us this summer for a two-week intensive session devoted to the science of sustainable energy using Problem Based Learning techniques. Stipends of $200 per day, travel allotment, meals, housing, and 3 graduate credits are all provided.
Summer session dates are tentatively June 10-21st. We'll begin Monday morning at 9:00 am. Accommodations check-in is Monday afternoon, June 10th. Check-in for the second week is Monday afternoon June 17th. The second week will end Friday, June 21st at 1:00 pm.
In the 2013-2014 school year, Regional Summits will be held throughout the state in the fall and spring to share information gained in the two-week summer workshop. Teacher participants in Research Goes to School will provide leadership for these summits by helping plan and deliver the sessions.
On-going support will be provided through a webinar with Purdue research scientists where participants will be able to clarify and deepen their understanding of the science of sustainable energy. We will also provide a hub site where teachers across the state can share ideas, experiences, and lesson plans.
Surveys, focus groups and questionnaires will be used throughout the year to help us develop the best-practice model for delivering grand challenge research topics into high school classrooms.

Your teacher is interested in participating in the Research Goes to School Program offered by Purdue University. Selected Participants will become Teacher-Leaders at our Regional Summits held in the fall and spring of 2013-2014 throughout Indiana. The expectation is that Participants will share the scientific learning from the summer workshop. In addition, the lesson(s) developed during the summer and its effectiveness will also be shared. Should your teacher be selected as a Participant in the summer workshop, he/she MUST be willing to become a Teacher-Leader for the Regional Summits.
This is a five-year program funded by the National Science Foundation. In Year Three, we are focusing on the science behind the conversion of biomass to biofuels. Research Goes to School is designed to help teachers make important connections for students between the crops grown around them, the global need for a sustainable energy source, and the science taught in your school. Ultimately, we hope to spark interest in STEM fields by sharing numerous grand-challenge topics with prospective college students.
