The Project

Project Title Using Technology in the Elementary Science Classroom
Insects To Study < LEFT BLANK >
Project Description These preservice teachers are spending the semester learning how best to develop and deliver inquiry science lessons for an elementary students. The use of technology is one key component of creating inquiry based lessons. The purpose of this project is to help future science teachers envision ways that technology can inspire children in their science education. Teachers will see the potential that Bugscope has to spur children toward future paths in science academics and careers. (This class meets on Mondays 4:15p - 6:55p. Our March 15 class will be devoted to technology, which is why this would be our first preference. If this date is not available, we would be able to do a session at the same time on March 8 or March 29).


Where did you hear about Bugscope? I am a long-time participant in the Bugscope project (still with the Park Ridge, Illinois schools and now also with Northeastern Illinois University). I originally saw Bugscope demonstrated at an Illinois Science Teachers Association Conference in St. Charles, Illinois. Look forward to hearing back from you.
