ITEEA'S SAFETY RESOURCES

This Safety Resource site includes printable safety posters and corresponding safety tests as well as PowerPoint presentations and videos that teachers can use to reinforce safer Integrative STEM Education (I-STEM Ed) lab practices. These resources complement the completely revised (2014) Designing Safer Learning Environments for Integrative STEM Education, Fourth Edition, which aids teachers in developing and carrying out a safety program in the technology and engineering education classroom.  Order the Safety Resource on CD from ITEEA today - www.iteea.org.

Tyler S. Love and Kenneth Russell Roy, with the help of the staff at ITEEA, created these webpages for those who purchase the book, with numerous safety resources to help promote safer I-STEM Ed teaching and learning. Under the safety tests tab of the website are videos created by Luke Rhine, Director of Career and Technical Education for the Delaware Department of Education (also included in the Supplementary Materials portion of the CD) showing students the safer way to use various tools and machines, which are accompanied by corresponding safety tests.
