From The Berkshire Eagle:
As part of a week-long seminar, “Industry, Innovation, and Inquiry: Bringing the Science of Berkshire Innovators into the Classroom,” a dozen STEM educators from high schools across Massachusetts took classes and workshops at science museums and also visited STEM-focused employers throughout the Berkshires. Teachers were challenged to create interactive museum exhibits for students based on the content they learned at the employers they visited. The seminar was presented by the statewide nonprofit Museum Institute for Teaching Science (MITS). MITS provides professional development for K-12 teachers and informal educators and collaborates with over 100 museums and non-profit science education organizations.
