Kickoff resources

To kick off the 2020 #STEMdrivesOhio Design Challenge, OSLN hosted a launch event at the COSI Science Center where teachers came to learn about the topic of smart mobility and how to implement a design challenge at their schools. The day was broken up into several small sessions where teachers could begin to think of the technological, social and economic impacts of transportation issues within their communities and in the world at large.

Dr. Jack Marchbanks, Director of the Ohio Department of Transportation, addresses how teachers can use the S.M.A.R.T. model of assessing modern transportation innovation can focus your student’s solutions. DriveOhio is a valuable partner in the #STEMdrive Ohio Design Challenge and takes a vested interest in student development

The resources from presenters are all posted on the Smart Mobility page with the title “Kickoff”
