Description
ODU elementary education students and fluids mechanics students will partner together during Spring semesters to collaboratively learn science and engineering content knowledge, create a lesson plan, and lead approximately 100-150, 4th grade Norfolk Public School students through their designed lesson. The goal of this partnership will be to increase science (and engineering) content knowledge of preservice elementary teachers, as well as strengthen course concepts and communication skills for engineering students. Support of this FIG grant would provide funding for technological tools that ODU students will use to teach science and engineering content to local Norfolk Public Schools elementary students.
