Due to COVID-19 we regretfully announce the postponement of our summer workshop until July, 2021. We will reschedule the planned webinars until the ’20-’21 academic year. We plan to offer additional webinars and/or mini courses during the coming year to introduce both PBL and optics/photonics. We’ll be posting details at https://atecentral.net/msites/massa
This site describes a quarter century of work by the New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) and its partners to improve secondary and post secondary STEM education with funding from the National Science Foundation’s Advanced Technological Education program (NSF ATE). The PHOTON Projects, a series of three curriculum and professional development and laboratory improvement projects in optics and photonics, engaged middle and secondary school teachers and college and university professors across the U.S. The Problem-Based Learning (PBL) Projects have developed a collection of authentic real-world multimedia Challenges(case studies) with industry partners in the areas of optics and photonics, sustainable technologies, and advanced manufacturing and introduced them to teachers worldwide. Visit the CHALLENGES to view the existing problem-based learning curriculum.
