Roseville, Calif. – July 18, 2016 – Hands-on learning in science is not only critical for students but teachers, too. This month, PASCO® Scientific, a global leader in 21st century science education, will hold two summer institutes to help K-12 and higher education teachers learn how to teach science and STEM using the SPARKvue® and PASCO Capstone™ data collection and analysis software. The PASCO Capstone Summer Institute took place July 21-23, and the SPARKvue Summer Institute will be held July 28-29 in Roseville, Calif., at PASCO headquarters.
To date, teachers from across the United States and around the world — including Cambodia and Kazakhstan — have registered to attend. During the in-depth workshops, teachers will develop skills to take full advantage of teaching with PASCO probeware, including the new line of wireless sensors. Through a mix of demonstrations and hands-on activities participants will master the features of the software, hardware and interfaces, and optimize their use of technology in the classroom. They will return to their classrooms with a solid foundation for effectively integrating probeware into their science or STEM curriculum, and with classroom-ready labs activities they can implement right away.
SPARKvue is PASCO’s award-winning science learning application that combines rich standards-based content, data collection, visualization, analysis, and assessment into one seamless environment. PASCO Capstone™ is data acquisition, display, and analysis software that is designed for advanced physics and engineering labs.
Registration for both institutes reached full capacity with a waiting list established for each. These annual trainings tend to fill up quickly but interested educators should contact firstname.lastname@example.org for information on next year's Summer Institutes or any of the other different training options that are available.
