Abstract

The Math-Science-Engineering Technology in Iowa on Applied Renewable Energy Areas (MSETI - AREA) project aimed to provide area middle school teachers with an applied mathematics and science curriculum package based on Photo-Voltaic (PV), wind power, and hydrogen fuel-cell fundamentals. The MSETI -AREA project has established a partnership between the university and selected area middle schools for the improvement of students' mathematical and scientific skill sets, improve their technological literacy by creating an environment where they must understand and figure out relationships among basic mathematics, science and engineering technology applied to renewable energy fields in order to mentor and manage effectively, and to give them a professional skill-set for successfully applying mathematics and science to technical projects with diverse teams throughout their careers. The use of a number of renewable energy and energy efficiency based hands-on projects will also promote mathematics and science for middle school teachers and students. © American Society for Engineering Education, 2009.
