In-Person Professional Development
Our innovative PD courses train teachers on how to spark and sustain student interest in STEM and how to teach STEM using the 5E Instructional Model, during the critical years before high school.
In-Person PD (part online, part in-person) is available to school districts and corporate partners by request.
Our Educator Institutes are held across the US, and offer educators a fun and engaging way to increase their STEM teaching skills. A wide range of businesses and organizations has sponsored past Educator Institutes: Northrop Grumman, Lockheed Martin, The Office of Naval Research and many others. If you would like to showcase your company's commitment to STEM by sponsoring a Sally Ride Science Educator Institute in your community, contact us.
Sally Ride Science Academy
The acclaimed Sally Ride Science Academy was held from 2009-2014. During that time we trained more than 10,000 educators and through those educators reached 3 million students.
Although the Sally Ride Academy is currently on hiatus, we have converted the curriculum to an online PD course—Ignite Student Interest in STEM—that is engaging and innovative.
