STEM Innovations Summer Teacher Workshop 2024
K–12 educators are invited to apply to attend our 2024 STEM Innovations Summer Teacher Workshop. Classroom teachers, building master teachers, curriculum specialists, and administrators are welcome!
World War II, Women, and STEM
July 14–20, 2024
By the end of this week, educators will have a deeper understanding of World War II and will be able to implement the use of the STEM Innovations Curriculum (Little Engineers, Real World Science, and STEM Corps Live!) into their own classrooms. This includes learning about the role women played in STEM during the war.
Additionally, educators will gain pedagogical tools and strategies to not only strengthen their teaching of STEM subjects but also to integrate literacy practices and social studies into science investigations with students.
Educators will spend time in whole groups sessions as well as in cohorts based on the grade band in which they teach (Little Engineers K–4, Real World Science 5–8, STEM Corps Live! 9–12). There will be time to explore the Museum’s galleries as well as field trips to support STEM/WWII learning. Free time can be spent exploring the great city of New Orleans.
Educators will receive:
- Arranged airfare OR a reimbursement for travel if within driving distance
- Transportation from and to the airport if flying/paid parking if driving
- Double-occupancy rooming at The Higgins Hotel (across the street from the Museum) *If educators would like a single-occupancy room, they may pay for half.
- All breakfasts, lunches, and two dinners
- Two excursions/field trips
- Curriculum, books, and materials
- Certificate of completion
Educators who complete the workshop will be required to design and facilitate one professional development session on their own within the 2024–2025 school year. More information will be given to those who are accepted.
