Be a Changing Force in Your Classroom and School
Over the course of the program, teachers will participate in over 45 hours of professional development that will include hands-on workshops, seminars on science education, and conversations with visiting scientists and engineers.
Sessions give teachers access to the museum’s resources, including staff and community expertise, curriculum resources and exhibit areas. Transform the Montshire into a learning laboratory for developing and piloting lessons for eventual use in the classroom.
Over the course of 12 months, participating teachers will:
- Receive extensive professional development in STEM education
- Work side-by-side with fellow educators from across the region
- Be coached and mentored by experts in K-8 STEM education
- Develop the skills and theoretical science understanding to support inquiry-based science education in your classrooms
- Infuse a culture of science learning in your school community
Learn from the Montshire’s education team, who will serve as the core faculty for this program. Each Montshire staff member will offer their depth and diversity of expertise in K-8 science education. The program also includes visits to or from research scientists and engineers from such places as Dartmouth College, Dartmouth Medical School, Thayer Engineering School and the US Army Corps of Engineers Cold Regions Research and Engineering Lab.
A $500 stipend will be provided to each participating teacher.
Programs will be adapted to in-person, virtual or hybrid based on up-to-date health guidelines from the state.
