About this event

Who should attend?

We welcome and encourage middle school and high school teachers leading science inquiry to attend our Learning Exchange: Teacher and Scientist Roundtable scheduled for Thursday, November 3, 2022 from 4:30pm to 7pm. Teacher-Scientist Roundtable is a one-day professional development experience for teachers in the San Diego area. Participating teachers will have a chance to interact with UC San Diego MRSEC scientists in small groups as well as network with fellow teachers.


Join your fellow teachers to:

Examine different approaches to hands-on science learning including gaining greater confidence with science content

Explore Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering practices (SEPs) and make connections to real world application

Engage in inquiry and networking alongside UC San Diego Materials Research and Science (MRSEC) scientists

Learn more about Materials Science and Engineering and its educational outreach offerings to teachers and students

Teacher-Scientist Roundtable Registration will be open until capacity has been reached. We anticipate being able to generate a wait-list in the event a spot becomes available.
