July 6 – August 9, 2020 via Zoom

The STEMteachersNYC Summer Institute is an annual gathering of stem teachers from around the world who are dedicated to improving their practice and sharing with peers. This summer join us for a new kind of online professional development. We have re-envisioned our face-to-face workshops, prioritizing the building of relationships and community. This summer we celebrate 10 years of bringing together educators across STEM disciplines and grade levels. The 2020 Summer Institute will see the return of our home-grown set of core workshops as well as new offerings. Scroll down to see the full lineup below!
