Family Science & Engineering Nights – Need Presenters

Greetings Students:

I am looking for students interested in presenting for family science & engineering nights at area schools.  The spring semester schedule can be found here.

Please let me know if you are available to present and which nights. I need two presenters on these dates: Jan. 30, Feb. 6, 13, 20, March 6 (all Wednesdays).

We usually depart the MTU-GLRC at 4:45 pm, except for Feb. 13 & 20 where we have to drive to Ewen (60 miles) and Wakefield (100 min.).

All of the Family nights are 6 -7:30 pm. From 5-6 pm, we eat dinner & set up in the classroom.  (Usually instructors will let you go early if needed. Many profs are familiar with the Family Science Night program and have allowed students to leave lab a few minutes early in past years.)

I have 4 notebooks of prepared lesson plans that you can choose from.  Let me know your preferred grade: K-1, Gr. 2-3, and gr. 4-5 and if you have a topic you’re interested and I can email a lesson to you. Or you can stop by 115 GLRC and look through the lesson notebooks. Presenters organize your own materials. We have lots of supplies available.

Feel free to forward this email to other interested students. They should contact me if they are available and let me know which dates.

I will provide transportation to the school, dinner, and $25 stipend per night.

Thanks!

Join Green Campus Enterprise for our end of the semester final presentations to see what we’ve all been working on! This is a great opportunity to learn more about Enterprise!

THURSDAY APRIL 12th, DOW 875, 5-6pm

GLRC Retrofit– exploring the feasibility of using the water of Portage Lake as a heat sink for the GLRC year round with the greatest application in the warmer months

Solar Thermal– evaluating the feasibility of installing a solar thermal collector at Michigan Tech. The solar collector would be used to preheat water for hot water usage on campus.

Building Efficiency– investigating how energy is used throughout the DOW and M & M buildings

 

THURSDAY APRIL 19th, DOW 875, 5-6pm

Tiny House Community– assessing the feasibility of a tiny house community on Michigan Tech property

Campus Culture-overall goal of the Campus Culture Team is to move the culture of Michigan Tech’s campus in the direction of increased sustainability
