Come Join Us At Smithsonian This Summer!

We're excited to announce that together with other museums and units of the Smithsonian, we will once again be offering the Smithsonian Science Education Academies for Teachers (SSEATS). SSEATS were started in 2005 to bridge the gap between formal and informal science education by combining training in science content and pedagogy with behind the scenes experiences at a wide variety of Smithsonian units, Smithsonian Affiliate partners, inquiry-based STC/ STCMS curriculum and world-class science research facilities throughout the Washington DC area.

The 2013 academies are focused on the following topics: Biodiversity (July 23-28); Energy: Past, Present, and Future (July 7-12); and Earth's History and Global Change (July 21-26).

Learn more about how you can enhance your career with this wonderful opportunity.
