The main project will focus on crowd control techniques used by police officers, firemen, and the Department of Defense (DoD). An expert in DoD crowd control techniques will discuss his career and the various STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) technologies involved in creating a crowd control system. Since the majority of participants teach Algebra 1, the project will focus on using Algebra 1 standards.
The University of Southern Indiana and NSWC Crane have partnered together to make this workshop available. USI has a Partnership Intermediary Agreement with Crane which focuses on technology transfer, STEM education, and innovation process research.
Located 90 miles northeast of Evansville, Crane is the third largest U.S. Navy facility and third largest employer in Southwest Indiana with over 3,500 employees.
