1 OPAS Vision for the Year All Oregonians have the opportunity to choose and successfully pursue engineering or applied science as their field of study and career, thereby helping Oregon’s industries innovate and prosper in the global economy. All-OPAS Workshop 2009: ETIC Internal OUS Grant Reporting February 4, 2009 Oregon Institute of Technology Project Lead the Way Teacher Training $273,000 Maintain PLTW State Affiliate Status & host Summer Training Institute for Teachers

2 Enable State Affiliate to train and support PLTW teachers, schools, certifications, and grow Master Teachers Best Practices Used & Key Learnings relevant to OPAS Bright Future Proposal – Teachers training teachers ( Desimone, et al., 2002) – Infrastructure is important to continuing the work ( Nelson, et al., 2002) – Collaboration between sTEm faculty is important to sustain pre- engineering in high schools ( Brower, et al., 2007) – Collaboration between high school and university E & ET programs essential to grow engineering student population ( Brower, 2009) OPAS Vision for the Year All Oregonians have the opportunity to choose and successfully pursue engineering or applied science as their field of study and career, thereby helping Oregon’s industries innovate and prosper in the global economy.

6 Quotes from Supplemental Grantees : – Jonathon Bullock, Principal, Redmond High School The ETIC grant has allowed us to expand our Project Lead the Way program in a variety of ways. We now have more students, a wider diversity of students, and more program capacity than ever before. Our students are engaged in our pre-engineering program with highly-trained teachers and state-of-the-art technology, allowing us to make PLTW a key component of our career academy program.

7 Quotes from Supplemental Grantees: – Steve Day, Principal, Health & Science High School All is well regarding PLTW. We have a brand-new-to-teaching teacher, Tom Baker, working in what has become our 10th graders' favorite class by far! I've been very impressed with the curriculum that Tom has been given as well as the structure of the work (engineering design was not my background at all). Our passing rate at the end of first trimester is 90% for the IED course. To provide context: this is a course that all of our 10th graders take as a part of their core curriculum here at HS2. With regard to underrepresented groups in engineering, our 10th grade is approx: 48% living in poverty, 35% Latino, 60% female, 20% English-language learners. As such, we celebrate the success of our teacher and our students!!!

8 Biggest Challenge to Success – The most important issue related to the success of PLTW in Oregon is the lack of a “State Leader.” Job Description of a State Leader: Better to be located in one of the major metropolitan areas of the state Must have a pulse on issues pertaining to middle and high schools, both political and day-to-day Must have a passion for STEM education within Oregon – Not just for the top 10% of students but top 80% – Able to talk CTE, Science, and Math (please collect resumes for this position at the end of meeting!)
