Robotics-themed program takes aim at science teaching

Teaching science through robotics
This summer, middle- and high-school science teachers from around Michigan will gather at MSU to take part in a robotics-themed program designed to refine their teaching skills and come up with more exciting ways of teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) programs. The educators will be participating in the Research Experiences for Teachers (RET) program, funded by a $500,000 grant from the National Science Foundation. The program will engage 11 faculty members from the College of Engineering in training 10 to 12 teachers every year for the next three years.

Can a robot help make a better science teacher? That question may soon be answered at Michigan State University.
