One of the most recent speakers to join us at the Summer Leadership Institute is NSELA member Rodger Bybee, one of the grandfathers of science education, the father of the 5E's method, and one of the authors of the Next Generation Science Standards. Rodger will speak about his new book, "STEM Education Now More Than Ever". His book is described as being "as thought-provoking as it is constructive".

In his book Rodger looks at the impact of STEM in the history of the US, and includes practical recommendations, one of which involves the importance of strong leadership from teachers and the STEM education community—leadership Bybee believes we need now more than ever.

Lithium battery dangers and how you can help prevent them! 



Many physics and STEM labs use lithium batteries. Unfortunately their potential danger is unknown until a fire occurs. Schools need to make sure they know how to properly use, store and dispose of them before a serious safety incident occurs. Check out the following recommendations on how to deal with them at: http://www.ktvu.com/news/lithium-battery-dangers-and-how-you-can-help-prevent-them
