SDDOE schedule of 2014 summerís SLO (Student Learning Objectives) trainings for teachers
BHSU and CAMSE with Sanford Underground Research Facility

Strengthen your scientific content knowledge and improve your ability to connect your teaching to the cutting- edge science underway at the Sanford Underground Research Facility. Two weeklong workshops, designed for educators in grades 5-12, will explore the sciences (life, earth/space and physical), engineering and mathematics from a unique perspective. Connections will be made to science and engineering practices, as well as standards for mathematical practice.

Participants will learn about planned and ongoing research at the Sanford Underground Research Facility, participate in hands-on activities and take part in surface tours related to the content. In addition, we will utilize an HD Videoconferencing system to visit with scientists working at the 4850 Level. 
June 23-27 Grades 5-8

July 21-25 Grades 8-12

MTI Wind Energy Institute

Mitchell Technical Institute would like to invite high school STEM teachers to a 2-day summer Wind Energy workshop (with optional 3rd day wind farm tour). This workshop will provide a foundation of knowledge and skills regarding wind energy and how the principals of wind energy production can be used by STEM teachers to meet a variety of class standards.  A registration form with additional information is attached.  With the on-going constructcion of a new wind farm in the Tripp Lake area, this is a great opportunity for some schools in that area to learn about this industry and the science behind it.  Registration form. 

Any questions about the workshop content or material should be directed to Danny DeFries, MTI Wind Turbine Technology Instructor, phone (605) 995-7308, email   Questions about registration can be sent to John Heemstra, MTI Outreach Coordinator, (605) 995-7204, email
