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 will open applications for summer 2015 courses on May 20 for these courses:
Our Place in Space (space science and engineering)
July 13-17, 2015
Investigate universal laws of force and motion, engage in the engineering design and science inquiry cycles and more.
Expedition: Green (environmental science)
July 27-31, 2015

You can receive clock hour credits and can elect to earn three graduate credits from Valparaiso University or Loyola University.
