The OCTC hosted our 28th annual Teachers, Industry and Environment (TIE) Conference this year. This 3-day event offers free professional development opportunities for 3rd-8th grade science teachers in Ohio. The event is completely free for the teachers thanks to the generous support of our event sponsors.
This year, over 40 teachers were able to attend the conference learning fun, engaging, hands-on curriculum that they can take back to their classrooms. The sessions included presentations by scientists from the chemical industry, NASA, Ohio EPA, and the Chemical Educational Foundation. The teachers also got to participate in an in-depth tour of Ashland, and heard a fascinating keynote address from Dr. Frederic Bertley, the President and CEO of the Center for Science and Industry (COSI).
OCTC and our member companies continue to promote STEM education, and this event is a great way to give back to the educational community in Ohio. Thank you to all of our sponsors who continue to support this great event!
