Abstract

The Science and Mechatronics Aided Research for Teachers (SMART) program aims to enrich precollege education by providing teachers from New York metropolitan region with enhanced science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) educational content through training and research workshops. The program focuses on mechatronics as a vehicle for engaging teachers with hands-on activities to hone their research skills and exposes them to prototype product development. These experiences give teachers the ability to enhance their schools' science curriculum and laboratories. In 2003, the first year of the program, ten teachers participated in a four-week summer workshop. Within ten months of attending the program, 2003 SMART alumni are leading efforts at their schools to adopt mechatronics technology to simulate their students' interest in STEM fields.
