Shell invests in teacher professional development to deliver innovative and engaging lessons that improve student achievement and inspire more students to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering and math.
Shell partners with the National Energy Education Development (NEED) Project to improve energy education by engaging K-12 students and teachers in a deeper understanding of energy fundamentals. One such innovative program is The Science of Racing. Recently over 100 Houston-area middle and high school science teachers learned new ways to teach physics and chemistry. The workshop provides teachers with hands-on experience with various aspects of racing including material science, fuels, engines and polymers.
Here teachers are learning a new and fun way to illustrate physics in the classroom.
