FUSE facilitator training was held last month at Northwestern University and two Riverview teachers attended.
Audrey Hunter and Amy Farkas spent two days on campus and learned all the ins and outs of FUSE facilitation, which included: Testing out challenges, learning how to grade FUSE, what success in FUSE means and how to use the 3D printers.
They both did an incredible job jumping into this new opportunity and FUSE is going to make a big impact on the students at Seitz Middle School. We are looking forward to kicking FUSE off this school year.
