If you answered "yes" to any of the above questions, you may be qualified to be involved in the project, "Bechtel K-5 Education Excellence Initiative."
As a participant in this project you would become part of an instructional team that includes practicing teachers, college faculty members, and graduate students. These teams will work together to develop problem centered, interdisciplinary learning environments for kindergarten through eighth grade students that are attending schools in Adams County District 50, Adams County District 12, Denver Public Schools or Englewood Public Schools. The Colorado School of Mines will provide a two-week summer workshop on campus that addresses mathematical, scientific and engineering content and instructional pedagogy. Graduate student fellows will provide direct assistance to participating teachers in the classroom throughout the school year.
