On Saturday, April 23 rd, 2005, the Department of Physics, Prairie View A&M University (PVAMU), conducted a training session for six teachers from Eisenhower High School (EHS) on enhancing physics and mathematics instruction at EHS and the integration of mathematics with physics.

This session was a follow-up of an earlier session held on December 11 th 2004. The EHS faculty worked on roller coasters built using K’Nex equipment and a Martian rover simulation using programmable Legos (Lego Mindstorms).

The event was very successful. The enthusiasm of the teachers was truly marvelous. The experience was mutually educational and beneficial.

The planning and brainstorming session following the laboratory training was very productive. Keep visiting this site for more details.
