Education Matters!

Summer Institute

The STEAM Summer Institute will offer a menu of different professional development workshops for educators to learn about STEAM education opportunities, make connections with resources, and plan STEAM activities to use in their own setting during the 2017-18 year. Educators will receive stipends for attending sessions and in many cases, materials and resources to use later. Registration is now closed.
