Southwest Center for Microsystems Education – SCME Teaches Educators About MEMS
SCME’s professional development programs, kits, and web presence allow educators to adopt, adapt, and customize educational materials to meet the needs of their students and local employers. Since SCME’s 2004 inception, more than 400 educators have participated in SCME’s cleanroom fabrication and hands-on workshops.
Surveys of workshop participants from 2009 to 2013 indicate that at least 2,000 secondary school students received more than 20,000 hours of microsystems instruction, while 1,600 postsecondary students received more than 12,000 hours of MEMS learning.
In recent years the number of downloaded SCME learning modules has doubled to 5,000 per month. Meanwhile, the number of views of SCME YouTube videos has surpassed 1,500 views-per-week.
