Lab school brings manufacturing technologies to middle-school classrooms – ElectroIQ (blog)

Posted: December 5, 2013 in Uncategorized

The new academy is the culmination of work undertaken in a project called the FabLab Classroom, an NSF Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) project led by Glen Bull, professor at UVa’s Curry School of Education, and co-director of the Center for Technology and Teacher Education. “The next-generation science standards call for making science and engineering equal, but there are no science teachers today trained to teach science and engineering and, even more importantly, there are no professors of science education prepared to train teachers to teach science and engineering,” says Bull. “We wanted to change this.”

Murry Shohat‘s insight:

Professor Bull has the right idea and motivation. No wonder that Asian competitors are watching this closely.
