SEES Teacher Institiute

How would you survive a drought? Can you make a simple machine? How about a lesson on calorimetry? Fifty-six teachers from all over the north state spent the past week at CSU Chico  at the Science and Environmental Engineering for Secondary (SEES) Teacher Institute answering these types of questions  on energy and matter. The SEES institute is a partnership between the Tehama County Department of Education and CSU Chico  that gives teachers training and resources on the new Next Generation Science Standards.
