Teacher-driven professional development for AZ STEM Teachers, funded by Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Env. & Social Justice.
Stay tuned for information about our 2016 Summer Institute!
We will post details as soon as they become available!
The Arizona Center for STEM Teachers (ACST) was created in 2008 from grant funds awarded by Science Foundation Arizona and matching funds from the Philecology Foundation. We serve Arizona-based Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers, and our mission is simple: to provide quality, applicable professional development for teachers in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). ACST is housed at the University of Arizona Biosphere 2 in Oracle, Arizona. For the past 2 years, our Summer Institute has been funded through grants from the APS Foundation. This year, we are honored and pleased to announce that we have been generously funded by the Agnese Nelms Haury Program in Environment & Social Justice.
We MAKE SURE that our teacher participants are well-taken care of by providing housing, all meals and snacks, and supplies during their stay here at Biosphere 2, as well as high-quality professional development that is meaningful and immediately implementable in their classrooms. We want teachers to know that we honor them and their profession. A central component of the ACST is that it is designed and run by classroom teachers, as who knows better what teachers need in their professional development!
