No cost to attend.
Learn strategies to integrate Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics and other disciplines into real-world applications with science mentors, museum educators, and engineers as you explore New Haven and develop assessable, innovative STEAM curricula that meet state and national standards. In a supportive and actively engaging environment, educators forge ongoing relationships and community connections and leave with tools to support them throughout their careers.
STEAM programs focus on inquiry-based, hands-on curriculum that more closely aligns with what students will experience in later life. STEAM education captures students’ natural curiosity and thus enhances student engagement. It encourages creative problem solving and emphasizes the iterative design process.
A stipend of $250 and CEUs are awarded upon the completion of the workshop.
Registration is Closed for the 2017 Summer Workshop
