One project PenTV has been working on in the background for more than half a year is the Schmahl Science Workshops, a series of “train the trainer” science videos. Headed by Dr. Ismael, these videos are geared toward educating future teachers with concepts for hands-on learning. We have been working on four topics: Trebuchets (shown above), Rockets, Parachutes and Roller Coasters.
Last week, Josephine Yu introduced PenTV’s Trebuchets video at the 2013 STEM Grant Awards in San Mateo, at which Supervisor Carole Groom spoke. These Schmahl Science videos are a continued media relationship with San Mateo County from last year, in which we highlighted various teachers throughout the San Mateo Peninsula that received grants through a series of interviews.
