Educator Workshop: Summer Secondary Biology Institute

Description: The Summer Secondary Science Institutes are one- or two-week workshops on science content and classroom experiments and techniques for high school teachers. None is a prerequisite for any other.

The Summer Secondary Biology Institute is designed to help high school biology teachers actively involve their students in biology concepts. Master teachers will present hands-on activities and proven classroom strategies with a study of major topics in biology. Participants and instructors will explore and develop connections to the NGSS High School Life Science Standards, as well as the Scientific Practices and Crosscutting Concepts from the NRC’s Framework for K-12 Science Education.

Participant needs will be addressed. Participants will receive and add to a Strategy/Curriculum Notebook. Teachers may bring their students for field studies of Fermilab's prairie, pond and woods.

Graduate credit is available through the University of St. Francis. More information about graduate credit is available here.
