Area High School Teachers Attending IMPACTSEED Program

Area high school teachers of chemistry and physics are meeting at Jacksonville State University through June 16 to train in the annual IMPACTSEED program while their students enjoy the summer sun. Dr. Nouredine Zettili, a physics professor at JSU who runs the program, said the training consists of an intensive, two-week long professional development program offered to in-service and pre-service  teachers. The training consists of a series of lectures and hands-on-activities dealing with the basic concepts of  chemistry and physics, class demonstrations, and a number of essential experiments as outlined in the Physics and Chemistry Core sections of the Alabama Course of  Study.

Instructors of this year's IMPACTSEED program are, from left to right, Dr. James Conely, Title II Staff Assistant, Office of Institutional Effectiveness and Planning, Alabama Commission on Higher Education; Dr. Alfred Nichols who teaches chemistry; Dr. Laura Weinkauf, physics; and Dr. Nouredine Zettili, physics.
