Learn or update core science concepts for teaching grades 1-8 with this online certificate program.
For teachers, curriculum specialists, and resources specialists, in this Advanced Professional Certificate (APC) in Science in Education you will be encouraged to take a hands-on, interactive approach to science teaching. Transfer your new skills directly to your classroom or school for improved student science learning.
Required courses cover physical science, engineering, earth and space science, and physics. Electives are in green chemistry, natural disasters, robotics, space science, and particles, fields, and waves. Latest science findings are incorporated into all courses.
This course focuses on the use of the engineering design process to solve problems within a science context integrating STEM content. Participants investigate case studies of real engineering problems in the field, bridge content to practice, and begin to visualize research in an interdisciplinary context. Through the use of technology and design, participants deepen analytical and problem solving skills. Teachers will also become familiar with engineering education applications and learn to modify for their classroom.
