K-12 educators and specialists from any Massachusetts or nearby state school (public, private, etc.) are invited to apply for the June 2016 Communicating Science Workshop K12 session! This session will take place Saturday, June 11th from 8:30am - 5pm at Microsoft's 1 Cambridge Center location in Cambridge, MA.
This unique professional development experience will provide educators with a fantastic opportunity to meet young leaders in science communication. The workshop attendees will work with graduate students in STEM disciplines to produce an innovative lesson using current cutting edge research and data. This event is an exciting opportunity for educators to work directly with scientists to develop methods for communicating complex technical concepts to a K12 audience. Our goal is for you to walk away with something you can use in your classroom.
Application, registration, and attendance to the workshop is free of charge for accepted applicants. Please note that we are unable to provide travel support this year. In order to attend you must cover your own transportation costs.
Selected applicants will receive a $250 stipend.
