Trainees contribute to UTeachEngineering program

A meeting with UTeachEngineering ( staff and IGERT members in January 2013 resulted in a plan for IGERT students to develop a one-week mini-module adding to the high school course developed by UTeachEngineering, Engineer Your World. The IGERT students submitted ideas for the modules and determined that concepts around storage/transference of electricity could be combined with teaching the students how the grid works; filling an energy gap in the current curricula for the Engineer Your World course. All IGERT students agreed to work on the project during three 90 minute work sessions scheduled outside of the regular IGERT weekly meetings.
