Real World Externships for Teachers of STEM

NSF Awards: 1031784

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12

Secondary school teachers of math, science, and technology spend six weeks full time in business and industry applying their content and process skills to real challenges of the private sector. Working shoulder-to-shoulder with researchers, plant managers, technicians, engineers, and skilled workers, teachers emerge more fully in command of the application of their subjects in the world of work. They return to school with new lessons and units that bring the curriculum to life. And they have lasting partnerships with private sector partners right in their towns. Businesses end the summer with problems solved, dollars saved, a legion of youth inspired to aspire, and a strong return on investment.
