Dear Math, Science and Technology Teachers and High School Administrators:
You are invited to participate in a paid summer engineering day-camp for high school educators at Cleveland State University's Fenn College of Engineering. The camp is funded by the Ohio Board of Regents (OBOR). The Pathway to Engineering Camp will be directed by Dr. Majid Rashidi, chairperson of Engineering Technology and professor of Mechanical Engineering. I will assist Dr. Rashidi in the administration of the camp.
DATE, TIME, LOCATION:
At this time, we are seeking 20 high school math, science or
technology teachers (grades 9-12) for an eight-day, paid camp
that will run from Monday, July 8, 2013 to Wednesday, July 17,
2013. Camp activities will take place at CSU in Stilwell Hall,
located at 1960 E. 24th Street and Chester Avenue in downtown
Cleveland. The camp will operate from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. each
day. This camp is for educators only, not students. Teachers will
receive a total stipend of $1,000 for their participation. The
stipend will be paid after the camp concludes and will be pro-rated
based upon a teacher's attendance. The payment is taxable.
MEALS AND PARKING:
A free continental breakfast and lunch will be provided each day. Please indicate on your registration form if you have specific dietary requirements or any life threatening food allergies.
Each teacher will be provided with a temporary CSU parking pass before camp begins. Directions to CSU, as well as specific information about parking, will be provided to you before the first day of the camp. To park on the CSU campus you must provide a valid license plate number and the make, model, year and color of your car. Example: (Make) Ford, (Model) Fusion, (Year) 2013, (Color) Blue. Your driver's license number is also required on the registration form.
The camp will feature a way of teaching mathematics to bring more real world examples and application of mathematics to engineering design and practice. A daily schedule of activities is available here.
REGISTRATION AND REFUNDABLE FEES:
Interested high school teachers must complete and return the attached registration document, along with a $25 refundable registration fee, and RSVP to me no later than Friday, June 14, 2013. Mail the registration form to my attention at the address shown. Your Social Security number is required for tax purposes and to receive stipend payments. The registration fee will be returned to you when you arrive on the first day of the camp. Please do not send cash. Send a check with your registration form, made payable to "Cleveland State University." The return address is shown below and is also on your registration form.
