Education Office Needs Assessment Workshop

On October 2, 40 educators from 15 school districts met at Fermilab to discuss the status of science education in the context of state and national frameworks. Districts were selected at random from DuPage and Kane counties, and superintendents selected a team to represent the district at the workshop. The group provided input to the Education Office regarding future program direction.

Over the next few months the Education Office will be reviewing program offerings in light of the issues raised below. In the meantime, we invite you to visit the Teacher Resource Center which serves as our clearinghouse or call Susan Dahl at 630-840-3094 for assistance. If you would like a scientist to visit your classroom, participate in a career fair or serve as a science fair judge, contact Luann O'Boyle at 630-840-4229. For those of you who have access to Internet, we have started a list of useful Web sites as the "surge" tool you requested. The URL is http://www-ed.fnal.gov/url_index.html. Let the Webmaster know if you have other sites to recommend. We also have an index of on-line engaged learning classroom projects developed by teachers who have completed the LInC course. There are about 60 K-12 projects. The index is at http://www-ed.fnal.gov/project_index.html, and the on-line course materials may be found at http://www-ed.fnal.gov/linc/linc_home.html.
