We all know how important and fun science and math can be for students when placed in a real-world context with hands-on experiences. As classroom teachers devote more of their time and energy to reading, writing and testing, they are struggling to include these real-world, hands-on experiences for their students, yet these teachers see how fun and important hands-on science and math is for their students.
The vision of the Pipeline Partnership is to support classroom teachers by providing opportunities for engaging students in innovative hands-on science experiences that bring together scientific thinking, literacy, and math skills around an in depth, hands-on science project. The UCCS Center for STEM Education offers a variety of ways for educators to provide this invaluable opportunity to their students, including workshop field trips to UCCS, and in-school training sessions for educators in our workshop topics and method of inquiry-based learning!
Current projects include topics like:
