Science Education as It Relates to Technical Education.
American Association for the Advancement of Science, Washington, DC. Commission on Science Education.; American Association of Junior Colleges, Washington, DC.; American Technical Education Association, Inc., Delmar, NY.
The purpose of the symposium was to bring to the attention of the scientist, the industrialist, and the educator some of the critical problems facing the implementation of program offerings for technicians. Presentations were "The Science, and Mathematics Base of A Technical Curriculum" by Maurice W. Roney, "Science-Based Technical Education in the American Educational System" by Jerry S. Dobrovolny, "Problems of Student Motivation and Identification with Science in Technical Education," by Stanley M. Brodsky, "Science Requirements for a Technical Teacher" by Arnold A. Strassenburg, "Technicians and Industry" by Joseph A. Patterson, "Utilization of Technicians in Engineering Laboratories at Bell Helicopter Company" by George H. Linnabery, and "Training and Utilization of Engineering"Scientific Technicians in the Petroleum Industry" by Harold S. Kelly. Because of the shortage of competently trained paraprofessional employees in all of the professional fields, science educators are urged to become involved in the development of new approaches in science education to help eliminate some of the problems confronting science educators in technical education programs.
