The 2018 Engineering Summer Program for Teachers (ESP4T) was a weeklong professional development workshop in Laramie, Wyo., focusing on the use of Arduino and Raspberry Pi as teaching tools to engage K-12 students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). Participants in both sessions had the opportunity to learn about the breadth of academic and career opportunities available to their students in engineering and applied science. Educators came away with the necessary skills for cross-curricular course integration. Participants received a UW stipend, UW credit and/or PTSB credit.

 

ESP4T, 2018 Workshop:

Arduino:

 

 

Workshop Participant Expectations:

  • Complete Web tutorials on C and Python before 2018 summer Workshop (20 hrs)

  • Attend 1 week Summer workshop (40 hrs)

  • Implement a lesson plan developed during the summer session, submit a final report, and present to your school peers and administration about the ESP4T lesson implementation

Workshop Participants received the following items:

  • UW credit and/or PTSB credit on successful completion of 80 hr expectations.

  • Stipend1: $1,000 was awarded to those participants who complete the web tutorials and the summer, 2018 workshop.

  • Stipend2: $500 will be awarded to those participants who implement a lesson plan developed during the summer session, submit a final report, and present to your school peers and administration about the ESP4T lesson implementation.

  • Materials: Participating Teachers new to the  ESP4T workshops received Arduino and Raspberry Pi loaner kits to use in their classroom.

Workshop Team:

We’re a group of professors, graduate students and undergrad students in UW’s Electrical and Computer Engineering department, the UW Science and Mathematics Teaching Center, and UW’s College of Education. In addition to instructing teachers in new STEM resources that they can use to introduce technology and engineering subjects into the K-12 learning system, our goal is to provide an on-going resource for teachers who use these technologies in their classroom.

  • Suresh Muknahallipatna, Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

  • Robert F. Kubichek, Associate Professor, Electrical and Computer Engineering

  • Andrea C. Burrows, Associate Professor, Secondary Education

  • Jeffrey R. Anderson, Assistant Academic Professional Lecturer
