STEAMing Into The Future:
Teaching with Historic Archival Sources in Science and Chemistry
Aimee Bachari - Education Coordinator, Steamship Historical Society of America (SSHSA)
Building on the extensive resources of the SSHSA, this program will introduce participants to incorporating historical data and real-world applications into chemistry and science teaching. Thermodynamics, solution chemistry, and the engineering design process will be featured. Participants will experience hands-on activities that can be incorporated into their secondary and post-secondary classrooms. An introduction to the SSHSA’s new educational website and a tour of their archives will also be included in the program. Join us for an exciting morning connecting chemistry and history.
Aimee Bachari joined the SSHSA as Education Coordinator in June 2017. She has brought SSHSA’s STEAMing Into The Future concept to life by creating the beta educational website, (www.shiphistory.org) launching in May, 2018. Aimee holds a Bachelor’s degree in History from University of Massachusetts-Dartmouth and a Master’s degree in History from the University of Houston, where she worked on numerous public history projects. She is currently finishing her PhD in History and recently graduated from a software development bootcamp.
