Teen 'n Teacher Training (T3)
Teen 'n Teacher Training (T3) is a series of workshops and sessions conducted by the UCCE 4-H Program. The sessions are geared to develop skills in presenting science topics in non formal settings such as youth groups, afterschool, and park and rec programs. The trainings are for both teens and adults.Teens, volunteers, and teachers are invited to attend our monthly T3 - Teen and Teacher Training. January 27, 2010 we will be working on developing presentation, demonstration and interview skills. This session is entitled Tell It, Show It, Sell It.
Afterschool programs often serve youth ages 5 to 14. Recognizing the different ages and stages of youth and applying this to science, engineering, and technology (SET) programming is critical to achieving desired youth outcomes. In this session, staff will review developmental stages of afterschool youth and learn how to do SET with mixed-age groups. Applying the National Science Education Standards to age-appropriate practice will also be covered.
