Am. Horse School Teachers Attend Science Workshop
The Department of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering at South Dakota School of Mines and Technology in cooperation with Dow Chemical Company recently sponsored a workshop for science and mathematics teachers of Native American students. The workshop was attended by Mary Miller and Jeanne Christensen, teachers at American Horse School in Alien.
The workshop had two areas of emphasis. It dealt with environmental concerns and with methods to teach Native Americans.
Field trips included trips to the Black Hills Forest for land management, the Homestake Mine, the Biological Wastewater Treatment facility in Lead, the Rapid City Materials Reclamation facility, and the Merillat Particleboard plant.
Presenters for SDSM&T covered topics in plastics recycling and chemistry in the classroom. Industrial speakers were from Dow Chemical and Cargill Corn Milling Company. Native American presenters were John Hass, Oglala Lakota College, and Debbie Yellowrobe, Mainstream in Rapid City.
Native American students from SDSM&T shared their ideas about teaching. These students were Stacy Phelps, Tanya Martimass and James Halbert.
