Overview of Educator Workshops
Professional Development for educators is a priority of the
CEEO. We offer week-long workshops during the summer as well as
day-long workshops during the year. Workshops are structured to
allow participants to engage in similar activities to their
students. Most of the time is spent on hands-on activities and
understanding how to present engineering to students - there is very
little traditional lecture. These workshops focus on a range of
topics from the LEGO toolkit to simple machines to integrating
engineering and literature.

On-Site Professional Development
CEEO staff is also available for on-site professional development.
We work with each school to develop a professional development
experience to meet the needs of the school and teachers.
Professional development can focus on the acquisition of skills,
such as the LEGO toolkit, or working with teachers to incorporate
engineering into their classrooms. Possible topics include
integrating engineering and literature, the science of sound, the
properties of materials, animal studies, and simple machines.
