New Orleans Workshop for Gr 5-8 STEM Teachers

03 Feb 2019 2:32 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)


KATS officers--

I have an opportunity for teachers that I hope you will pass on to your members:

Real World Science is a weeklong summer seminar for 5th-8th grade science teachers that explores key STEM concepts using real-world WWII examples. Twenty-eight teachers from across the country will come to New Orleans to experience hands-on how necessity, knowledge, perseverance and skill lead to inventions, innovation, and careers in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics), just like in World War II.

PROGRAM DATES: July 14 - 20, 2019

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: The seminar application is open to any 5th-8th grade science teacher (public, public charter, private, and parochial), who will be teaching a science course to students in the same age group in the 2019-2020 school year. Applications will be evaluated through a competitive process that will include information on teaching experience, a short written statement, and two letters of recommendation. Teachers newer to the classroom are encouraged to apply.

Applications will be accepted from January 7 – March 15, 2019. 


COST: This seminar is supported by a grant from the Northrop Grumman Foundation. Teachers will receive free room and board in New Orleans, a travel stipend, and all seminar materials free of charge.


 Thank you
