Several local outlets highlighted a UT aerospace workshop that showed educators fun ways to bring STEM education into the classroom through hands-on activities.
The 13 East Tennessee teachers, from kindergarten through 12th grade, received graduate credit for the course.
The educators flew model planes, dropped eggs from a rooftop and launched rockets at UT as part of the conclusion of the course.
The workshop was funded by the Civil Air Patrol. It is a collaboration between UT College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences; the UT Astronomy Lab, based in the Department of Physics and Astronomy; and the Civil Air Patrol U.S. Air Force Auxiliary.
