During the summer of year 1, teachers participate in a week-long experience in the research laboratory of faculty members from various UK and BCTC colleges and centers. During the summer of year 2, the same cohort of teachers participate in a one-week industry externship. To increase teachers’ conceptual understanding of STEM disciplinary core ideas, STEM practices and 21st century skills, teachers will spend year 1 and year 2 in the same discipline area. Faculty members and industry representatives will collaborative to coordinate the experiences teachers have across the two-year project.
