Learn how to use the latest free or low-cost media technology to enhance
your lessons and encourage student learning in the great outdoors.
Instructor Kat Gemmer, a high school science teacher at Greeneville High in

technology to enhance STEM education in your classroom.  This is a great
way to excite students about a new unit or to use as a tool for assessing

some simple technology.
