Los Angeles Area Teachers Participate in ASM International Science Workshop at Bosco Tech
Summer Session's Goal to Interest More Students in STEM Fields
"It's Bosco Tech's ongoing mission to share the diverse STEM professions with young people," said Jim Curiel, Bosco Tech's chair of its Materials Science & Engineering Technology program. "We're grateful that we can partner with ASM International for the benefit of area instructors and their students. Equipping teachers to better share the wonders of STEM fields means that more young people may become engaged."
The workshop, running Aug. 7 through Aug. 11, offers continuing education units (CEUs) and optional graduate level credits for participants. The experiments featured can easily be integrated into existing lesson plans.
"We want to give the teachers hands-on and engaging ideas for materials and labs that will give students practical applications,"
