Apply for Summer Teacher Education Courses
MSI courses are designed to help fourth- through eighth-grade educators increase their knowledge of science, improve teaching skills and demonstrate how to use Museum programs and exhibits to enhance science curriculum. Explore topics relevant to your science curriculum and return to the classroom with new ideas, greater confidence and resources to make science engaging.
Courses are offered at no cost, and content is aligned with state and national learning standards in science. We're taking applications through 6 p.m. June 7 for these courses:
All About You (anatomy and life science)
June 23-27, 2014
Master unifying themes in life science and relate them to the human body through activities on cells, genetics, organ systems, health and wellness, and evolution.
Our Place in Space (space science and engineering)
July 28 - Aug. 1, 2014
Investigate universal laws of force and motion, engage in the engineering design and science inquiry cycles and more.
You can receive CPDUs in Illinois or CEUs in Indiana. Teachers who take All About You also can earn graduate credit at the Illinois Institute of Technology or Valparaiso University.
