UCS teacher among 12 to take part in STEM-related outreach program in Germany


Bethany Swartz (second from right) was among 12 U.S. STEM educators to take part in an outreach program this summer in Germany.  

The group is here in front of the Brandenburg Gate in Berlin.
A Utica Community Schools elementary teacher was among 12 educators to take part in a two-week outreach program in Germany focused on the sciences.

Bethany Swartz, of Harvey Elementary, was part of a team of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) educators to experience Germany as part of an all-expenses paid trip as fellows of the Transantlantic Outreach Program (TOP). The team took part in science related activities as part of the outreach program June 19 through July 4.

The TOP program selects the best and most qualified social studies and STEM educators to learn more about German through access to policy makers, elementary and high schools, vocational schools, universities, corporations, manufacturers, NGOs, cultural venues, and much more. The TOP study tours offer a behind-the-scenes view into the pulse of German culture, which educators then bring back to their students and communities.
