“Learning isn’t always in school and teachers aren’t always in classrooms,” said i2STEMe Coordinator Kania Greer, Ed.D. “Science To-Go brings STEM education and teaching to students and the community.”
Georgia Southern University College of Education’s (COE) Institute for Interdisciplinary STEM Education (i2STEMe) is taking science on the road. Equipped with a new enclosed cargo trailer, the Institute plans to travel Southeast Georgia providing science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) activities to K-12 students and community members as a part of a project called Science To-Go.
Science To-Go offers hands-on, educational activities in physical science, life sciences, chemistry, mathematics, physics, engineering and technology through a mobile unit. Activities will rotate periodically, allowing for new and interesting experiments for participants.
For more information on how to bring Science To-Go to your school or event, contact email@example.com.
Many members of the Georgia Southern University community have helped Science To-Go come to life. The striking appearance of the trailer was designed and completed by Georgia Southern graphic design students under the guidance of Santanu Majumdar, M.F.A., associate professor in the Betty Foy Sanders Department of Art. The Georgia Southern Museum is also collaborating on the project.
Additional partnerships are being requested as the Institute will need volunteers to help facilitate activities as well help create new activities for the project.
Volunteer facilitators will have the opportunity to evaluate student comprehension of activities and learn about how to develop engaging activities that can span grade levels, all while actively engaging with the participants. With a mobile and informal environment such as this, activities grab the attention of participants and provide educational content in a short amount of time, generating the spark of passion for STEM education.
