Join us to learn about engineering at a local, innovative company level and at the higher education level! FLEXHIBIT, the Spokane-based company that has designed and built custom projects for over 10 years, and Gonzaga University School of Engineering and Applied Sciences are partnering to provide educators with an intriguing and hands-on workshop.
During this workshop, teachers will use the Quake Table (QT) FLEXCART to perform an inquiry-based lesson from the QT NGSS aligned unit plan written by Dr. Rohan Kundargi of Gonzaga University. The teachers will experience the Quake Table FLEXCART and its engaging, diverse, multi-user learning environment for students. A tour of the GU School of Engineering and Applied Sciences will conclude this workshop.
