On November 10 and 17, 2015, 18 teachers visited the Princeton Center for Complex Materials as part of Teacher Prep's program to learn about materials science and how to apply it to the classroom. This unique PCCM program is part of a larger "Teachers as Scholars" initiative as part of Princeton University's Teacher Preparation program.
The teachers toured the PCCM labs and facilities. They also discussed the interdisciplinary nature of science from many of PCCM's scientists and engineers, including Professors Bab Cava, Rick Register, Rod Priestley, Claire White, Nan Yao, and several graduate students.
PCCM members led guided discussions on how to apply what they learned in compliance with the new "Next Generation Science Standards."
