Science and Engineering in the Lives of Students

Oregon State University, the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics Science Media Group, Chemeketa Community College, and collaborators Vernier Software & Technology, Energy Trust of Oregon and Conservation Services Group are producing three 20-minute videos to explore the science topics of heat transfer, electricity, and strength of materials. These videos are to be used as part of high school curriculums and teacher professional development to demonstrate how high school science and mathematics is valuable for a wide range of technical professions in the construction industry. The project will also present an instructional model for using construction contexts for teaching concepts presented in the National Science Education Standards.  Contact PI Larry Flick Larry.Flick@oregonstate.edu.
