Real World Science Training Opportunity

REAL WORLD SCIENCE—YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW
How Necessity Creates Innovation in Science and Technology
July 19-24, 2015 in New Orleans, LA

The National WWII Museum is excited to announce a week-long professional development opportunity to take place in the summer of 2015 for middle school science teachers. 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.

WHO CAN PARTICIPATE: The seminar application is open to any science teacher (public, public charter, private, and parochial) with between 2 and 10 years of teaching experience in 5th-8th grade science, and who will be teaching a science course to students in the same age group in the 2015-2016 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. Two spots will be reserved for qualifying Louisiana teachers.

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.

Applications are due March 6th, 2015 at: http://www.nationalww2museum.org/learn/education/for-teachers/summer-teacher-seminar.html
