The National Science Foundation STEM Guitar Project provides innovative professional development to high school and community college faculty. Faculty teams will take part in an intense five day guitar design/build project. Each faculty member will build his/her own custom electric guitar and will engage in student centered learning activities that relate the guitar design to specific math, science and engineering topics. Participants will leave this week-long experience with their custom-made guitars, curriculum modules with short term assessments that can be immediately integrated into the faculty teams school curriculum, and much more.
