Millersville Offers STEM Endorsement
The Pennsylvania Department of Education approved Millersville University’s application for the undergraduate integrative STEM education (iSTEM) endorsement for early childhood education majors. This is the first undergraduate iSTEM education endorsement program in Pennsylvania. AEST faculty members collaborated with faculty in elementary, middle & exceptional education (EMEE) to apply for this new endorsement. Early childhood education majors can take four courses – some which will be taught by AEST faculty – and apply for the iSTEM endorsement on their teaching certificate. The courses include ERCH 190 Introduction to Integrative STEM Education Pedagogy, EDTE/ERCH 290 Children’s Engineering, EDTE 490 Integrative Learning Using Experiential Strategies, and EDTE/ERCH 495 Integrative STEM Education Practicum. Courses begin Summer 1 2015. For more information, contact Sharon Brusic at Sharon.Brusic@millersville.edu or 717-871-5548.

Take me out to the ballgame!
The students in the new Master of Technology & Innovation degree took some time out of their studies to take in a Lancaster Barnstormers game. Dr. Scott Warner hosted the event for seven current students, several potential students, friends of the program, and the graduate faculty. It seems like we have a new tradition in the department!

Students Create 3-D Company
Dr. Barry David's Technical Entrepreneurship class usually creates quality products that are sold to the public at the end of the semester. In fact, the goal of this course is to examine enterpreneurship and the issues associated with developing a product and taking it to market by forming a student owned and run company each semester it's offered. This semester, the students took it up a notch!
NexTrack Printing came to life, and the product the students desgned are sunglasses. The "Blues Brothers-esque" shades look pretty ordinary until you consider how they were made: these shades were actually printed! The student company is in the process of organizing a production run, and hope to have their sunglasses available to the public by the end of the semester.
