A chemistry faculty member at Pennsylvania College of Technology served as an invited speaker at the National Science Foundation’s GK-12 Building Bridges: Capstone Conference in Lubbock, Texas.

Kelly B. Butzler, associate professor of chemistry, was among speakers invited to present a symposium titled “Flipping the Classroom in the STEM Disciplines.” STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math.

The GK-12 Building Bridges program is funded by the NSF and pairs graduate students in science, engineering and math with K-12 science and math teachers to develop integrated math-science or math-engineering curriculum modules for use in K-12 schools.
