In June 2005, new and returning teachers and fellows participated in a 3 day interactive workshop. The purpose of workshop presentations and activities was to familiarize teachers with engineering topics and processes that can be taught in their classrooms in a nonintimidating way; to introduce fellows to the styles and environments of different grade levels and classrooms; and to give teachers and fellows the opportunity to work together and get to know one another.
