For Educators

Now there are more opportunities to attend free STEM professional development this summer! Join this webinar to learn how to apply to the Siemens STEM Institute and Siemens Teachers as Researchers (STARs) programs: all-expenses-paid programs that allow middle and high school STEM educators from across the country to collaborate and engage in immersive, hands-on professional development. New this year, STARs will be offered at both Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, Tennessee, and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory in Richland, Washington. You will learn about each program and steps and tips for applying.

After listening to the webinar, I am more excited than before about the opportunities made available by Siemens. I would like to attend both programs - so I am going to have to make a difficult decision!

I did not realize that my computer will not run the webinar, I have a pre-Intel Apple computer. I would like to get the information.

I was a member of the first group of STAR teachers in 2010. I think you will be amazed at the work done at the national laboratories. In addition to working with an individual scientist, we had opportunities to visit and learn about the work done in many of the laboratories throughout Oak Ridge. I was excited to learn that they are now offering opportunities to visit other national labs. I would love to go again.

I was a part of the first cohort of STEM teachers to participate in this program in the summer of 2010. It was one of the best professional development opportunities I've ever participated in. The researchers were awesome and were so patient and willing to help train us in the two weeks we worked with them. I learned so much about authentic STEM research. I'd participate again if they'd let me.

I also attended the Siemens STEM Institute last summer and it was an awesome week. I still use what I learned and always find opportunities to share with others all of the wonderful "stuff" we learned. My students love using edmodo to communicate. It is worth the time it takes to fill out the application. Just do it!
