Summer Program at Univ. of Connecticut



  • I was sent this to share with as many teachers as possible. It is a fully funded summer program for teachers. There are fellowships available for specific topics. Application is due June 15th.

    Introducing our students to engineering is a national need. Most students love to be creative and to connect academics to the real world….this is what engineers do while making technologies that solve serious world problems. The UConn School of Engineering is holding its 19th annual daVinci Project. It is a weeklong (Mon-Fri) residential series of hands-on workshops for middle and high school science and math teachers. This year it’s being held July 15-19. Teachers live on campus and participate in one of 8 very engaging workshops, as well as many other seminars, a variety tours through research labs, our state of the art water reclaim and wastewater facilities, and our CoGen plant. Come and be part of an exciting week of exploration! We have 9 fellowships available. Please share this professional development opportunity with the other STEM teachers in your school or district. Workshop links below.

    1. Innovative Underwater Robotics for STEM projects –  1 Fellowship available
      
    2. Mathematical Optimization with Applications to Smart Grid and Intelligent Buildings – 6 Fellowships available
      
    3. Understanding Pain: Sensory and emotional stimulus to your brain – 1 Fellowship available

  • Jose, you are amazing at finding out great resources for professional development. Please share the trick. I would like to use it to help the teachers at my school.


  • I agree with Srividhya! You are amazing! This looks like a great opportunity for lucky teachers.


  • I get a lot of emails from different organizations. Some I have worked with before, colleagues send me info that have done the program and others because of memberships like NSTA, California Science Teachers Organizations, facebook teacher groups like NGSS physics and listservs through NSTA.
