BJHS teacher selected to participate in TAMU project

Brenham Junior High School teacher Diana Kohring has been selected as one of twelve teachers to be a part of the 2018-2019 Connected STEM: Promoting STEM Education through Connected Devices and Building Automation Project at Texas A&M University. The application process was very competitive with nearly 100 teachers applying to the project. Kohring has been invited as a partner in the year long project, and will spend two weeks on the Texas A&M campus to receive targeted, one-on-one instruction from Texas A&M faculty and industry mentors.

This collaboration among Texas A&M University, Blinn College, and other community and industry partners will promote junior high and high school student interest, skills, knowledge, and career aspirations in engineering through authentic engineering design activities related to building automation. This project uses a combination of junior high and high school teacher professional development, summer camps for students, and dual credit courses to promote interest and knowledge in STEM careers.
