ICTM-ISTS Math and Science Conference

In September 2015, the MTC hosted a booth at the Iowa Council of Teachers of Mathematics (ICTM)/Iowa Science Teaching Section of the Iowa Academy of Science (ISTS) conference for K–12 science and math teachers. The goal was to promote the use of hands-on, transportation-related learning activities in the classroom.

Information regarding the STEM-aligned AASHTO TRAC™ and RIDES courses was distributed to interested teachers to boost participation in MTC’s pilot program with the Iowa DOT. The booth also helped to inform teachers about the benefits of several other MTC-sponsored resources for students such as Go! e-magazine.
