    This course focuses on engineering design principles in relationship to application of science concepts. The course will survey the field of engineering and National Research Council's K-12 Framework for Science Education and the new UT SEEd Standards with emphasis on integrating science content with engineering practices. Since this class is meant for teachers it involves several labs. You may need other general house hold materials for these labs. The materials needed for these labs will be listed on the assignment itself. Please note: This class is a professional development course and is NOT offered for SUU credit as it does not count toward an endorsement for secondary science in Utah. Additionally, the online science courses require participants to practice science lessons in either a classroom setting or with a group of at least five individuals. In signing up for this course, you will need to be able to have weekly access to one of these two settings to complete assignments. Costs: While there is no tuition fee for these courses, courses may have modest costs. Some courses will require the purchase of course materials including but not limited to texts, digital resources, and/or professional organization memberships.
