University to Host Mass CPR Training

UNC Charlotte will host a mass cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) training exercise for students, faculty and staff on Wednesday, October 8, 2014, from 10:00 AM - 2:00 PM in the Student Activities Center (SAC). The training is designed to increase the number of people on campus who know how to save a life in the event of a cardiac arrest. Each training session will last for 30 minutes.

This is the second year the University’s Office of Environmental Health & Safety has partnered with Mecklenburg EMS Agency (Medic) to promote a mass CPR training. Last fall, over 250 students, faculty and staff learned hands-only CPR at the event. EH&S hopes to increase that number to 350 or more. Medic personnel will teach participants proper hand placement and how to perform compressions on a CPR manikin. Participants will be able to ask questions and learn the importance of quick action during a cardiac arrest.

CTI to Share Ideas for Teaching about Energy

Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) teachers will share bright, new ideas for teaching and learning about energy at a Charlotte Teachers Institute (CTI) event from 5:30 - 8:00 PM., Tuesday, Sept. 30, at the EnergyExplorium at McGuire Nuclear Station in Huntersville.

This free, public event, a "Teachers as Scholars" program, features CMS teachers who collaborated on the topic "The Nature of Energy: How We Use and Store It to Power Our Everyday Lives." It will highlight innovative curriculum they developed during a long-term CTI seminar, led by Susan Trammell, professor of physics and optical science at UNC Charlotte.

Sponsored by Piedmont Natural Gas and Duke Energy, the program will start with a reception and viewing of the EnergyExplorium’s exhibits from 5:30 - 6:30 PM, followed by presentations and a panel discussion with Trammell and CTI Fellows until 8:00 PM. Space is limited, so registration is recommended.
