In February 2017, the Koshland Science Museum hosted the current cohort of the Albert Einstein Distinguished Educator Fellowship (AEF) Program. The AEF Program provides a unique opportunity for accomplished K-12 educators in the fields of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics to serve in the national education arena. Fellows spend eleven months working in Federal agencies or in U.S. Congressional offices, applying their extensive knowledge and classroom experiences to national education program and/or education policy efforts. After spending the day working with staff from the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine, the Fellows visited the Koshland where they experienced Extreme Event: Rock City. After the game, Koshland staff discussed with the educators the various ways they could implement the game in their classrooms. From webquests to a fully-facilitated game experience, the fellows saw Extreme Event as a valuable tool to bring back to their schools.
