Applications are now being accepted for the 2020 cohort of Real World Science! Please pass this on to teachers in your network.
The Real World Science Summer Teacher Seminar brings 28 teachers who will be teaching science to 5th-8th graders in the following school year to our museum for a weeklong training experience. Two of the spots are reserved for Louisiana teachers, and teachers from public and public charter schools are accepted. We are particularly looking for teachers with 2-10 years of experience who are excited to improve their practice of science teaching. The teachers learn best practices in science teaching and 3D instruction while being introduced to the Real World Science curriculum. It includes a trip to the Laser Interferometer Gravitational Observatory in Livingston, LA, and a field day doing water quality studies at City Park and Lake Pontchartrain. Teachers are reimbursed for flight expenses, and the museum provides hotel accommodations and most meals.
This year’s cohort will join us in New Orleans from July 12th-18th 2020.
Applications are accepted from January 6th 2020 through March 13th 2020.
