LECOM Bradenton’s Science Educators Academy (SEA) will offer high school educators a one-week summer program in which they will experience an academic medical school environment by participating in small group instructions, hands-on laboratory experiments and group discussions. Thirty-two SEA educators will be active participants in a Problem Based Leaning (PBL) modality in which groups of educators (8) and a facilitator will utilize a case presentation format to explore selected medical concepts and the medical science data that supports those concepts. The laboratory experiences are designed to expose the SEA educators to different teaching styles and hands-on practical clinical skills. Support materials for the case presentations will be gained through the anatomy/physiology lectures, PBL case discussions and the use of the educators’ copy of an anatomy/physiology textbook. Throughout the first week, information will be presented on science education, health career opportunities for their high school students in the health profession, and to help educators get ideas in how to prepare their high school student for their careers academically. The overall academy program is designed to give science educators more tools in teaching high school students the basic sciences.
