comfort level with adoption of the material into their own courses. Finally, the MUG process identifies how and where HSTI materials match state driven standards.

HSTI products are free to high school educators but access to HSTI products is a 2-step process. First, the HSTI team conducts a "mugging" that itself is a two part process. The first part is a "hands-on" workshop with the CD so those teachers understand the structure of the CD and how to use it. The second part is a short lecture series on the technologies and engineering science behind them. Once this "mugging" is completed, teachers are given the modules with the understanding that they will help use in the feedback evaluation loop that has been developed.

To date, HSTI products have been implemented in several states. Schools in Florida, New Mexico, Oregon, and Colorado are using the first module, THE PROBLEM SOLVING MODULE, in the series. It is expected this second module, THE ATOM, will also be a popular and practical addition to the teacher's curriculum content tool box.
