Ohio University-Zanesville hosts science program for teachers

ZANESVILLE, Ohio (June 27, 2005) -- Ohio University-Zanesville will be a host site for the Eastern Ohio Science Education for Public Understanding Program (SEPUP) Program, Aug. 1 and 2. Topics for the two one-day workshops are "Investigating Energy from the Sun" and "Waste Disposal: Computers and the Environment."

SEPUP is a diverse educational hands-on science program for middle/junior high school students, highlighting the use of science in the context of societal issues. Teachers attending the workshops will learn how to assist students in the collection and processing of scientific evidence and how to use it to make decisions.

Each module addresses many key Ohio Scientific Inquiry Indicators, Science and Technology Indicators, and Scientific Ways of Knowing Indicators plus multiple physical science content standards for grades 6-12. Each teacher attending the workshops will receive a complete SEPUP kit valued between $400-$525 and hands-on experience with each of the SEPUP Module activities.

The non-credit fee for this program is $20. 1.5 hours of Ohio University graduate credit is available. The cost per credit hour is $85. For further information or to register, contact Corrine Lund at (740) 588-1494 or lund@ohio.edu.
