PNNL Science & Technology Webinar: “Engaging the Future STEM Workforce through their Teachers” – December 1, 2020

Online Zoom Event
From 5 p.m. – 6 p.m.
Free to participate – must register for this Zoom session

A presentation by Alison Colotelo –

PNNL’s Teacher-Scientist Partnership aims to develop the future STEM workforce through the professional development of teachers. In partnership with PNNL researchers, we design a real-life, STEM problem-based immersion experience for the teachers. Teachers embrace the role of “learner” and engage in hands-on activities that show them how science is done at a national laboratory – in teams and across disciplines. Throughout the experience, PNNL’s Office of STEM Education works with teachers to connect the activities to their classroom and state learning standards. Teachers leave the experience with tools to integrate problem-based learning into their classrooms, in turn inspiring their students to pursue careers in STEM fields.

Please join MCM for our first major streamed production of the 2020-21 season!

We are excited to have solicited content from all of our performers to enable us to edit together a reduced version of Henry Purcell’s opera as realized by Benjamin Britten. All excerpts were prerecorded in adherence to safety protocols following the cancellation of the fully staged production scheduled for earlier this year.

The opera will stream on Vimeo at https://vimeo.com/483267427 starting November 27 at 7:00 p.m. and will be available to watch through November 29 until 10:00 p.m.
