On September 22, 2010 Carolina Curriculum spent the day working with the pre-service teachers at the University of Connecticut. Katie Arace, Regional Manager for Carolina Curriculum and Jim Smoyer, worked with the professors at the university to help put inquiry materials and resources that are necessary in the hands of future teachers. Carolina Curriculum believes that the more exposure and awareness future educators have the more comfortable they will be teaching inquiry to our students. In the Energy, Machines, and Motion unit students investigate energy and the many forms that it can take, how forces do work to change energy from one form to another, how machines reduce the effort force needed to do work, and how forces change the motion of objects.
