Summer Academic and Honors Institute at Ohio Northern University
Description:

Summer Academic and Honors Institute at Ohio Northern University

SAHI Stem courses utilize four areas of the Ohio Revised Science Standards and Model Curriculum: Life Sciences, Physical Sciences, Chemistry and Physics. These courses address specific areas of the standards and use guiding principles such as Definition of Science, Scientific Inquiry, 21st Century Skills, Technological Design, and Depth of Content, all while implementing assessment tools developed especially to be congruent with the standards. Faculty expertise includes subject areas such as cell, molecular, genetics, general chemistry, biochemistry, and organic and analytical chemistry and a thorough understanding of contextual analysis. These subjects utilize specific scientific content to bolster the goal of the integration of an extended curriculum using the scientific inquiry/learning cycle to develop skillsets for the application of specific science content of multiple disciplines for problem-solving and deeper, lifelong learning. The idea of knowledge transfer in context is one found in a July 2012 report from the National Research Council, “Assessing 21st Century Skills: Summary of a Workshop.”
