CEE and Capital One Host Bite of Science

The Center has launched the Teacher Enrichment Program (TEP) to assure a future talented and diverse U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

 
PRLog (Press Release) - Oct. 18, 2012 - The Center for Excellence in Education (CEE) and Capital One will host the Bite of Science dinner event for high school teachers at the MathScience Innovation Center in Richmond, Virginia. The event is scheduled for Tuesday, October 23, 2012 from 4:30-6:30 p.m. Science teachers and teachers of humanities who wish to broaden their perspective of science in their classroom are invited to participate.

The mission of the Teacher Enrichment Program helps to assure a future talented and diverse U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).  It focuses on best practices and resources, as well as exposure to the breadth and depth of scientific discovery often not available to rural and urban high school teachers and their students.  The Bite of Science professional development opportunities for teachers is estimated to impact at least 11,250 Virginia students in 2012.

The Teacher Enrichment Program will provide content and information to teachers so they can engage students to become interested in pursuing STEM careers.  

“This is a terrific opportunity for teachers to come together and learn about cutting edge technology and research,” said Congressman Eric Cantor, 7th District of Virginia (VA-07).  “Such innovations are critical to making sure that our students are more than adequately prepared and challenged both in and out of the classroom.  I want to thank all the teachers for going above and beyond to foster our children’s educational experience and to ensure that we have a talented future workforce in science, technology, engineering and math.”

CEE will feature Mr. Stanley Suboleski, Senior Vice President and Mining Engineer, Evans Energy and Dr. Maura Fierro, R&D Scientist, Polymer Science and Engineering Group, Center for Packaging Innovation, MeadWestvaco.  They will discuss their work and relate it back to the classroom.

The goals of the Teacher Enrichment Program are to:

·Provide teachers with enhanced professional development

·Furnish the opportunity for teachers to ask questions and to interact directly with scientists and engineers

·Foster excitement in teachers to create an interest for students in STEM fields

·Inform teachers so they have a better understanding of research and development

·Allow teachers the opportunity to network with their peers
