Masaru Uchino Named HI Milken EducatorMomilani Elementary | Pearl City, HI | Feb 02, 2017
Back in the classroom, third-grade teacher Masaru Uchino returns to the day's lessons. Uchino, who worked for a Japanese automotive racing parts manufacturer before entering the classroom, brings real-world STEM experience to his students. Last year he developed a unit in which students used concepts of reflection and refraction, angles and area to engineer a light maze. The National Science Teachers Association has recommended the unit for inclusion in its NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards) curriculum.
