Recent GNOSEF Workshop Offered Area Teachers Resources Needed To Help Students Navigate The Road To Science Fair Success

Dr. Janell Simpson (at board) leads the recent GNOSEF Teachers Workshop on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Tulane University.

NEW ORLEANS – Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair (GNOSEF) recently hosted a free workshop for teachers and science fair coordinators on Saturday, Aug. 26, at Tulane University, from 9:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Round-table discussions with experienced teachers addressed finding opportunities and overcoming obstacles, while providing important information needed to participate in the 62nd Annual Greater New Orleans Science and Engineering Fair to be held Feb. 26-28 and March 1.

         Attendees were awarded a certificate after the five-hour training session, which can be submitted to their school district for requesting CLU (Continuing Learning Unit) credits.

         This annual GNOSEF educator workshop offers sessions that focus on integration of science inquiry and engineering design into all STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curricula. Educators chose among workshops such as "Statistics for Data Analysis" and "Experimental Design in Your Classroom" as well as sessions with advice for teachers whose students are interested in competing in the regional science fair.

         Hosted by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), Tulane University, Core Element, H. Britton Sanderford and the Patrick F. Taylor Foundation, the free, five-hour workshop included an introduction to the GNOSEF plus the opportunity to attend three breakout sessions that allowed participants to focus on their individual areas of interest and need.
