CPS Teachers Hone STEM Education Skills at Science Club Summer Camp

“This is why I can’t wear green!” laughed meteorologist Tracy Butler. Monika Roszkowski, a 3rd-grade teacher at Cameron Elementary, stood in front of a green screen in the ABC-7 newsroom. She watched her green sweater disappear; in its place, a map of the Chicago suburbs.

Earlier this summer, Butler gave Monika and seven other 3rd-grade Chicago Public Schools (CPS) teachers a behind-the-scenes tour of the ABC weather station. These teachers were part of Science Club Summer Camp’s Weather and Climate cohort.
