My latest articles on science, technology, engineering and math education have come out in the February issue of NYSUT United Magazine (formerly New York Teacher Magazine.) In this month’s issue, I focus on the extraordinary effort some teachers make to bring dynamic, hands-on, STEM programs to their students. I also wrote a sidebar on a grant from Corning Inc. that will allow NYSUT to expand its SEMI High Teach U program to the Southern Tier.
Coming in the March issue, I’ll have a piece on strategies for increasing the participation of women and minorities in STEM fields.
That’s the topic of the CNYSpeaks forum we have been working on with FOCUS Greater Syracuse. The free, public event is from 7:30 to 9 a.m. Friday, Feb. 18, at City Hall Commons, 201 E. Washington St., Syracuse. Please attend if you can — you do not need to register in advance. Participants will work in small groups with CNYSpeaks-trained facilitators to explore the elements required for effective public meetings.
