CU-Boulder hosted a full-day professional learning event for Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) science teachers in fall 2015 at the Idea Forge. The focus was on how to teach engineering to middle and high school students. Presentations and breakout sessions were given by faculty and staff from BVSD and CU-Boulder, including representatives from CU Science Discovery as well as the BOLD Center and the Integrated Teaching and Learning (ITL) Program, both from CU-Boulder’s College of Engineering and Applied Science.
