Free workshop planned to help math, science teachers engage learners

October 6, 2016

A free workshop to explore ways to engage learners in science and math will take place Saturday, Nov. 5, from 10 a.m. to noon at Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s Enid campus, room 202.

The Maury Project STEM Professional Development workshop for teachers is open to preservice, in-service and math and science teachers in grades 3-8 from Oklahoma and Kansas.

According to information provided by Dr. Steven Maier, professor of physics and chair of the Department of Natural Sciences at Northwestern, teachers will participate in activities showing how technology is used to measure sea level from space, as well as collect data in northwest Oklahoma.

Teachers can expect to leave the workshop with engaging demonstrations to show the properties of water -- including density, salinity and pressure -- a collection of scientific resources, opportunities for all ages to become citizen-scientists and to do scientific field research.

Participants attending the workshop also will receive certificates indicating two hours of professional development have been completed.

To register for this workshop, please contact Candice Autry at or call (202) 285-1591.
