The UMass STEM Ed Institute Presents: Tuesday STEM Seminars

sciphile.org: A Resource for Science Teachers

December 1

Guy Blaylock, Associate professor of Physics University of
Massachusetts Amherst.

Dr. Blaylock will demonstrate a website (http://sciphile.org) he has
developed to help teachers and parents teach science. The site aims to
facilitate STEM education by providing high-quality free materials for
learning and teaching, in or out of the classroom. It hosts a
searchable library of short science activities and lessons, which
strive to complement traditional lectures with engaging in-class
materials. Teachers can search for lessons according to class time,
materials, budget, and student background and interests. They can also
contribute their own materials through a peer-reviewed submission
process. Further development of the site is now focused on producing
more library content, and developing communities of contributors who
might provide that content.


STEM seminars are held at 4PM on the first and third Tuesdays of each
month during the academic year at UMass in Hasbrouck 138. Everyone is welcome; no
reservations are needed, and there is no charge.

Parking is available in the Campus Center Garage.
