Learn how to integrate hands-on STEM activities and literacy strategies into your science classroom with this free professional development program for middle school teachers. Participants will explore how to help students ask focused questions, set up investigations, and practice inquiry-based problem solving. By the end of this program, participants will cover various techniques to help them engage a broad spectrum of learners and teach a well-rounded science curriculum, regardless of the content topic. The program meets on February 18, 19 & 20 from 9 am – 4 pm, for a total of 20 hours. Participants will receive a $250 stipend at the end of the program.

    I am a high school librarian, but I do deal with grade 9. I would benefit from the goals of the science inquiry program and would like to know if you would consider my application.

    My husband and I filled out the application. We are anxious to find out if we were accepted. How will we be notified. (I realize the question has already been asked)
