These innovative workshops are designed to help find new ways to teach biology, chemistry, physics, computer science, or engineering topics to high school and middle school students. UTRGV science and engineering faculty will utilize research activities that are locally relevant, to train secondary STEM educators and district coordinators in developing TEKS-aligned lessons and labs that can be replicated in school settings. Workshop participants will be involved in hands-on or project-based lessons that are engaging and designed to increase students’ understanding of concepts, while getting them excited about STEM.
