Paper Abstract

The paper's goal is to inform outreach coordinators and scientists of strategies used to develop a Light Emitting Diode (LED) curriculum module for high school students. Field-testing the weeklong LED curriculum, teachers acquired new instructional strategies to develop students career and global workforce skills in STEM disciplines. The National Science Foundation (NSF) Innovative Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers (ITEST) funded program session will highlight initial findings of the developmental process, review data of the pilot study with middle and high school teachers participating in a teacher workshop and student program offered by The Science House of North Carolina State University.
