Summary:Did you know that building a home requires a full understanding of the local geology? Otherwise, adverse consequences may occur ranging from a flooded basement to losing a home to a landslide! This active 3-day workshop explores some of the engineering challenges and solutions New Jersey faces. It is perfect for educators seeking ideas for infusing engineering (NGSS-ETS) into their Earth & Space Science, Physical Science, or Environmental Science curricula. The academy will take place at Sterling Hill Mining Museum, which is the perfect living laboratory to host such a workshop given the amazing engineering feats that took place to mine the zinc. Attending teachers will receive classroom resources to effectively tie the content into their curricula related to the two Next Generation Science Standards stated above. Additionally, professional development hours will be provided. This event is sponsored by Sterling Hill Mining Museum and Picatinny Arsenal STEM Outreach Office.
