Clark County Science Teachers Benefit From Summer Training Program

Middle school science teachers from the Clark County School District are learning innovative teaching techniques and skills in a summer training program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV). The one-week program is a partnership with Project Lead The Way and is designed to offer teachers and students curriculum in science, technology, engineering and math to use in their classrooms during the school year.

The teachers in the program use bottle rockets made from empty soda bottles and air pressure as new instructional tools to teach the children of of Las Vegas residents. The teachers and students participating in the program are finding ways to make learning fun.

    1. I love hearing about the positive news in our community. TV and radio stations should take a hint!
