The Kenan Fellow Program at North Carolina State University has announced its 2014-15 winners. Fifty-one teachers, from across the state, will spend five weeks of their summer working with engineering and technology experts. The teachers will then use their experiences to develop new classroom resources.
Lesson plans from previous years have been made available. Click here to view or download those plans.
Established in 2000, the fellowship is a program of the Kenan Institute for Engineering, Technology, and Science. It is largely funded by the National Science Foundation, with the goal of providing professional learning opportunities for exceptional teachers.
There are more than 300 graduates of the fellowship program throughout North Carolina. The Kenan Institute has made available the following video of Fellow Talia Swiney talking about her experiences.
