This white paper covers SCME's work with Synergy and its integration of Value-Based and Scaling methods to enhance and improve SCME's impact on educators and their students.
"The Southwest Center for Microsystems Education’s (SCME) goal is to enhance the capability of emerging technology educational programs to produce technicians for research and the production of hi-tech products, namely Micro Electrical Mechanical Systems (MEMS). SCME does not only produce educational materials but also disseminates this knowledge to secondary and post secondary educators. Industry contributes their needs, and benefits from this effort as well. SCME offers participants numerous educational materials, lab/fabrication experiences, and kits to bring back to the classrooms. Through the Synergy process, SCME has embraced Value-Based Evaluation.
