Dates: August 3-8, 2014
Our 2014 Siemens STEM Institute Fellows will take part in the Siemens STEM Institute, a one-of-a-kind program that promotes hands-on, real-world integration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in the classroom. Watch the video to the right to find out how the Siemens STEM Institute impacts teachers from across the country.
A diverse group of fifty educators has been selected as STEM Fellows to attend this all-expenses-paid*, week-long professional development experience, hosted at the world headquarters of Discovery Communications, located outside of Washington D.C. Fellows will be exposed to leaders, personalities and innovators whose work across STEM disciplines shape and define our world today.
The week will be filled with guest speakers, field trips to leading institutions where Fellows will observe real-world applications of STEM subject matter, and networking opportunities with like-minded peers from across the nation. In addition to broad-based STEM applications, each Fellow will be assigned to a thematic working group that will provide additional deep-dive exposure.
