Project-Based Science with Bluetooth Technology
Travel with us to Uintah River High School on the Ute Indian Tribe's Uintah and Ouray reservation to learn how science teacher Mike Sanderson uses real-world projects and Bluetooth probes to engage students in critical thinking and computational thinking. See how Mr. Sanderson collaborates with his regional educational service center to design these projects, which connect directly to the Ute Indian Tribe's tradition of stewarding the land, plants, animals and water of their 4.5 million-acre reservation.
