Trine Professors Receive Grant To Offer Free Workshops
Thursday, November 14, 2019

Two Trine University faculty members have received grants to lead free STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics) education-related workshops for area teachers.

Ashley Overton, Ph.D., and Megan Tolin, both assistant professors in Trine's Franks School of Education, will lead Google Certification Training and E-Learning Days workshops through STEM Teach IV, a statewide fund that awards competitive grants to programs and initiatives that work to bolster the overall quality of STEM instruction in Indiana and advance student interest and knowledge in STEM fields.

Overton and Tolin have presented at international conferences on using technology in education, including one session over the summer that was covered by Education Week.

Sessions will be held in 2020 and 2021 and are open to K-12 in-service teachers. They will be held on Trine University's main campus in Angola, inside one of the Shambaugh Hall classrooms that have been redesigned to provide Trine students access to the latest resources for educational technology and practice.

Registration is now open for Winter/Spring 2020 courses and workshops and can be completed by creating an account at stemteachindiana.org/apply/.
