College of Engineering
The College of Engineering is using its classrooms and laboratories to educate the next generation of innovators, entrepreneurs, and corporate and civic leaders.
The goal of the College of Engineering is to serve society by educating students, solving problems of global importance, and contributing to national and international economic development. We have set our goals high and our vision is clear: to create a better world for future generations.
The week long course will be taught using the method of the Five E’s, each describing a phase of learning (engage, explore, explain, extend, and evaluate). Teachers receive a stipend, one graduate course credit at CSU, and a box of science tools to use in their classrooms. Potential science tools included heat packs, which show that liquids release heat when they freeze, solar cells to charge batteries, and infrared goggles to see infrared radiation outside. More importantly, participants will leave the course with the confidence and knowledge to teach their students about weather, climate, and climate change.
