Sigma XI and SciTEC Partners

Faculty from the College of Education, College of Engineering and Sciences, and the College of Applied and Natural Sciences joined educators from the SciTEC Scholars program on January 27 at 3:30 in the IDEA Place for the first SciTEC/ Sigma XI  Partners.  This was the first of five partner meetings planned for the spring. Future meetings include a scholarly lecture and networking reception. Teachers and faculty discussed ways to communicate some of the ground-breaking Louisiana Tech University research to young learners in our region. Many of the University faculty scheduled tours, special presentations, school visits and events that will take place with the PK-12 students during the 2015 spring. SciTEC Scholars are outstanding educators in North Louisiana focused on enhancing STEAM education and promoting relevant content and application of that understanding. The ten teachers were selected by district leaders and engage in multiple research visits during the academic year. This year they have visited the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Wave Observatory in Livingston, LA; and soon they will be journeying to LUMCON in Cocodrie, LA. We are thrilled about the opportunity to partner with Sigma XI under the direction of President Jamie Newman and Vice President Marisa Orr to enhance this experience and connect our teacher leaders with our University leaders !
