Congratulations to all the accepted teachers. This summer is going to be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The Arizona Center for STEM Teachers was created in 2008 from grant funds awarded by Science Foundation Arizona and matching funds from the Philecology Foundation. We serve Arizona Kindergarten through 12th grade teachers, and our mission is simple: to provide quality, applicable professional development for our teachers in the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. We are housed at the Biosphere 2 in Oracle, Arizona. For the past 2 years, our Summer Institute has been funded through grants from the APSFoundation. This year, we have a new foundation funding us. We MAKE SURE that our teachers are well-taken care of, by providing them housing, meals, snacks, and supplies during their stay here at B2, 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. One main component of the ACST is that it is designed and run by classroom teachers, as who knows better than us what teachers need in their professional development!
