STEM Ed Announcement: sciphile.org: A Resource for Science Teachers

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.
