Tech to Teach Teachers
One of the first lessons a teacher is taught is that learning is a life- long commitment.
This summer, the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology will help educators keep up that tradition of learning by offering two summer science courses, each worth two graduate or undergraduate credits. The classes are devoted to furthering teachers’ comprehension of Earth and space science.
The Earth science course will be held from 9 a. m. to 4: 30 p. m., Monday, June 11, through Thursday, June 14, and again from Monday, July 9, through Thursday, July 12.
The course will cover, in a down- to- Earth manner, mineralogy, petrology, structural geology, plate tectonics and paleontology.
The space science courses will be held from 5 p. m. to 12: 30 a. m., Monday, June 18, through Thursday, June 21, and again from Monday, July 16, through Thursday, July 19. The course will give teachers added insight into the origins of the solar system and the universe and instruction on planetary geology, galaxies and comets.
Both classes will stress the use of technology as a teaching aide and instructors will provide participants with lesson plans that can be used in classrooms.
Classes will be held at the Children’s Science Center, 515 West Blvd., Rapid City. The location provides access to a geologically diverse environment and dark skies ideally suited to the overall experience.
Tuition for each class is $ 363.20 for graduate credit and $ 284.90 for undergraduate credit.
