Behind the Scenes of UL

Rhonda Connor, a Kenan Teaching Fellow, went behind the scenes of UL Research Triangle Park in North Carolina where she discovered ways to incorporate engineering and safety science into her classroom. After spending five weeks in the summer shadowing UL engineers she created lessons around safety, behavior, economy and academic endeavors for the upcoming school year. Her hope is to provide students at Underwood Elementary the opportunity to be inquisitive problem solvers with an open ended engineering challenge.
