July 6 – Aug 14, 2020 @ Teachers College, Columbia University in NYC

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. The Institute provides a forum for the highest quality teacher-led professional development in STEM, featuring hands-on workshops taught by real-world classroom teachers.

This summer we celebrate 10 years of bringing together educators and professionals across STEM disciplines and grade levels. The 2020 Summer Institute will see the return of our home-grown set of core workshops like Seeing Science Everywhere and Unit Planning and Curriculum Design with NGSS, as well as advanced level workshops on Modeling, Standards Based Grading, and the Essentials of Engineering Design. We’re also offering a full-week Environmental Science workshop, and a new offering on the Dimensions of Responsiveness in STEM led by our Culturally Responsive Teaching Task force.
