2017 Summer Professional Development Institutes
MITS Summer Professional Development Institutes provide grades 3-12 educators with opportunities to explore STEM content through inquiry-based activities and visits to field trip sites. Each day is a balance of indoor, classroom-based components and outdoor field experiences led by educators from museums, aquariums, natural science centers, and science, technology and cultural organizations as well as scientists, engineers and other STEM professionals. Depending on the region, daily activities include: nature walks, behind-the-scenes tours of laboratories, introductions to resource centers, modeling of inquiry-based activities and more. All activities are designed to help educators meet State Frameworks and create interdisciplinary connections. Participants can choose to receive PDPs, or graduate credit and PDPs.
