ANSER Hosts a Solar Energy Teachers Workshop
The ANSER Center is driven to have an impact on our community beyond the science - Therefore, if the goal of outreach is to inspire K-12 students in meaningful ways, then not only do we need to connect with them, we also need to equip their teachers with the necessary knowledge and tools to become leaders in today’s STEM fields. To that end, the ANSER Center has begun an ongoing relationship with local middle and high schools through a partnership with the Office of STEM Education Partnership (OSEP) at Northwestern University.
This year on August 5-6, ANSER will be hosting teachers from local schools on two hands-on lab experiences: making dye-sensitized solar cells and solar hydrogen generation. More information on the workshop can been found here. ANSER student researchers will be helping the teachers understand the underlying concepts of the experiments, and also guide them through the labs on Aug. 5. On Aug. 6, these ANSER members will then have the opportunity to work with the teachers to develop new curricula for their courses that will be implemented in the Fall.
