Registration is now open for i-STEM 2021 Summer Institutes which will be held virtually in 2021! Participants are encouraged to attend i-STEM with colleagues from their own school, district, or organization so educators can learn together, share ideas, and collaboratively implement what they have learned.
All 2021 i-STEM institutes will take place virtually and run for three days. During the Institute, participants attend a strand on project-based, hands-on learning in a chosen content area, as well as general sessions tied to the Institute theme. Each participant will receive a kit (worth $200) of instructional materials unique to their strand, so that they can implement what they have learned in their own teaching environments.
Virtual i-STEM Institutes will be presented from 6 locations across the state during the last two weeks of June. While participants may attend strands at any location, they are encouraged to apply to strands at the closest Institute to connect with resources in your local area.
