The National Summer Teacher Institute combines experiential training tools, practices, and project-based learning models to support elementary, middle, and high school teachers in incorporating concepts of making, inventing, and innovation into classroom instruction. Intellectual property is modeled as both a teaching and learning platform to help inspire and motivate student achievement in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) disciplines, computer science, and other fields of study such as innovation and entrepreneurship.
Participants will be introduced to teacher-friendly instructional tools, lesson strategies, and innovation practices designed to enhance student learning and outcomes in the classroom.
Presentation speakers and hands-on workshop instructors will include experts from the USPTO, noted scientists and engineers, and representatives from other Federal Government agencies and non-profit organizations. A representative from the Texas Regional Office will be assisting with presenting select curriculum in addition to assisting program participants with their team projects.
