Eighty high school career and technical education instructors from seven states gathered on March 5 at the Universal Technical Institute campus in Norwood to attend a one-day workshop, “Identifying STEM in Your High School Automotive Curriculum”. Led by science, technology, engineering and mathematics curriculum expert David Damiani and assisted by Universal Technical Institute instructors.
Attendees learned how to transform high school automotive programs into STEM-based programs. Instructors participated in hands-on STEM activities and workshops on STEM rebranding and grant writing, along with workshops highlighting the latest skills and trends in the automotive repair industry.
“Recent advances in vehicles require that technicians are well-versed in STEM and it is important that high school automotive instructors have the education and tools they need to integrate STEM education into their classroom curriculum, as we do in our programs,” said Shawn Alexander, UTI-Norwood campus president. “The popularity of this workshop attests to the passion with which these instructors champion a STEM-based curriculum at their high schools.”
