Gottfried, Sandra S.; And Others
Scientific work experience programs are those in which teachers work in business, industry, or academic settings and perform scientifically-related work. The presenters in this panel presentation describe the scientific work experience programs they are working with. One purpose of the presentations was describing the practical aspects of the structures and outcomes of these programs to provide a basic understanding for teacher inservice education. The six programs highlighted serve 7th-12th grade teachers, and one program serves K-12 teachers. The programs include a variety of internship experiences. One program has a scientific research orientation, another offers both project and research internships, another is affiliated with a major corporation and integrates the internship with a masters program, and yet another has interpreted industry's quality management strategies into science and mathematics classroom applications.
