Paid Professional Development for Math and Science Teachers! 


Want to expand your knowledge of engineering and NGSS teaching strategies? 


And get paid for it, too? 


Now’s your chance.  The University of Kansas is offering an exciting summer program for high school science and mathematics instructors to learn about engineering design and how to incorporate these concepts into your classes. 


We invite talented teachers from diverse backgrounds to participate in this 6-week summer program.  Educators of all science and math subjects for grades 9 to 12 are encouraged to apply, especially pairs of teachers from the same school teaching different subjects. 


Participants will work in teams to do real-world, water-themed research in engineering labs at KU.  And, they will translate that research into lesson materials to take back to their classrooms. 


Your students will thank you!  All participants will receive supplies to support their new curricula offerings to enhance student learning and raise student awareness of career paths in STEM.
