NPI Supporting Texas Math Teachers Headed to TAMU for Summer Research, E3: Enrichment Experiences in Engineering
May 17, 2013
The Dwight Look College of Engineering is hosting 14 Texas
secondary school science and math teachers for a four-week
summer residential engineering research experience on the Texas
A&M University College Station campus during the month of June.
This integrated math/science program is designed to support student
success on the TAKS/STAAR.
It is with excitement that the Nuclear Power Institute (NPI) has
selected two math teachers for participation in the E3 program.
These educators also lead their school's WIT (Workforce Industry
Training) programs - from El Campo High School Adrian Canales and
from Foster High School Apolinar Guevarra.
Canales and Guevarra were selected to participate in the E3
program to learn how to introduce engineering concepts to their
students, increase student awareness of engineering, and encourage
students to consider an engineering career. Following their time at
TAMU, the pair will experience the South Texas Project Nuclear
Operating Company near Bay City, Texas, where they will participate
in job shadowing, presentations and trainings. The program's
mission is to excite, empower, and educate teachers about
engineering and other STEM opportunities so they can pass on the
knowledge and skills learned to their students.
