TECHFIT

NSF Awards: 1312215

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8

The TECHFIT project fosters middle school student enthusiasm for STEM disciplines. This is accomplished by equipping teachers with skills and tools to engage their students and show them how engineering technology knowledge can help them become innovators of interesting, fun, and valuable products. TECHFIT recruits teams of 2-5 science, technology, math, and physical education teachers from partner schools to complete a 6-day, professional development summer workshop. The workshop provides teachers with the information, instruction, lessons, and practice required to deliver a ten-week after school program for 6th to 8th grade students in which they design and build technology-based exergames. A showcase event allows all schools to show off their TECHFIT innovations at the host institution.
