Teachers as Scholars
On November 30 and December 7, 2018, 15 teachers visited the Princeton Center for Complex Materials as part of Teacher Prep's program to learn about materials science and how to apply it to the classroom. This unique PCCM program is part of a larger "Teachers as Scholars" initiative as part of Princeton University's Teacher Preparation program. The teachers tour the PCCM labs and facilities. They also discuss the interdisciplinary nature of science from many of PCCM's scientists and engineers, including Professors Craig Arnold, Kaushik Sengupta, Rod Priestley, Claire White, Nan Yao, and several graduate students. PCCM members lead guided discussions on how to apply what they learned in compliance with the new "Next Generation Science Standards."
