Engineering Concepts Curriculum Project Newsletter, Volume 4 Number 8.
Liao, T., Ed.
In the major article in this issue of the "Newsletter of the Engineering Concepts Curriculum Project (ECCP)," Hurd examines the current trends in science education in the United States and lists eight priority needs for science programs in the 1970's. These priority needs are closely related to the necessity of solving science-based social problems, including intellectual skills and appropriate values. Other announcements include the results of trial administrations of ECCP attitude inventories, lists of training programs for teachers using ECCP materials, and a copy of an evaluation instrument that may be used in ECCP classrooms. The filmstrip "SIMULATION, An Educational Tool" is reviewed, and an ECCP Implementation Center at the University of South Florida is described. (AL)
