Introducing the STEM Solar Lab – a new and exciting education venture

 

March 22, 2016

Hughes Pack  is a former high school physics and astronomy teacher and is now the Curriculum Director for the STEM Solar Lab project.

 

The STEM Solar Lab (SSL) uses solar electrical energy as the focal point of its new interdisciplinary STEM initiative to provide engaging “hands-on” activities that motivate students to invest themselves in significant and practical STEM education.  The Stem Solar Lab has three major components:  innovative and robust, but flexible curriculum materials, professional development for teachers and access to SSL-specific online electrical energy data from an on-site or remote solar array.  These components go hand-in-hand to successfully implement the STEM Solar Lab as a unique and dynamic educational tool. This project is the offspring of a US Department of Education SBIR grant.
