CareerTech is offering two camps in June for teachers to learn strategies on implementing project based learning in their classrooms.
We are offering our third STEAMmaker Camp and introducing Girls Coding. These camps are being offered at no cost to instructors and students that they bring with them. Teachers must apply and commit to attending the entire camp. Teachers who attend receive high quality and immersive professional development and get to implement strategies that they learn into practice immediately with their students who get to attend a cool summer camp.
Teachers do not have to be STEM teachers and we are encouraging anyone who has a desire to do project based learning to apply.
