The Challenger Learning Center at Wheeling Jesuit University has a great opportunity to offer high school science teachers that teach anatomy, biology, and health sciences. CLC is in the final evaluation stages of their newest mission: CyberSurgeons, and are seeking motivated high school science teachers that want to fly this videoconference mission with their classes (FREE of charge). These missions must be scheduled within this academic year. They are also offering teachers a $150 stipend if they successfully complete the on-line evaluation process for both teacher and students.
You can see the mission information at cybersurgeons.net and there is a video clip that explains the scenario and what students would be doing during the videoconference. The curriculum is based on national and state science standards related to human body systems and the disease process. The free CyberSurgeons videoconference provides a highly motivational context for high school students to apply science knowledge & skills to real-life problems. There is prep work to do prior to the actual videoconference connection; to register as a participant in the project, or to ask questions regarding the evaluation process, contact firstname.lastname@example.org. And remember, this opportunity is available during this academic year only.
