Materials Science and Technology. A Preview of an Exemplary High School Course Where Students Explore New Frontiers of Scientific and Vocational Education Know-How.
Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratories, Richland, WA.; Central Washington Univ., Ellensburg.; Northwest Regional Educational Lab., Portland, OR.; Richland School District 400, WA.
A materials science and technology (MST) program was developed at Richland High School (Washington) and pilot tested at seven sites in Washington and Oregon. The program created partnerships between science and vocational education teachers at Richland High and Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratories, and then was expanded to include other high schools, a college, a university, and other industrial laboratories to train teachers to teach materials technology to students. This document describes the program and its pilot sites, provides a course description and course philosophy, outlines course content, lists student learning objectives, and suggests an instructional approach.
