It will soon be time for the Smithsonian Science Education Academies for Teachers (SSEATs) this summer! In collaboration with other museums and units of the Smithsonian, the SSEC works to create and deliver week-long professional development academies for teachers of science.
There are many career opportunities that exist within the realm of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM). One of the most common misconceptions about these career paths is that they require years in the classroom, highly advanced degrees, and a great amount of student debt. It doesn't have to be this way! We have listed five STEM careers that range from a certificate to a doctorate. The best part is, many of them reside in the fastest growing job markets in the world and have excellent entry level pay.
In an effort to maintain momentum, 21 LASER i3 Phase 1 school teams from HISD took part in a two-day Implementation Institute (II), a follow-up to their 2012 II. The 64 administrators, teachers, and community members gathered together to revisit, reevaluate, and revise their five-year strategic science plans they developed roughly two years ago.

Smithsonian Science How? is a fun and innovative web series, also known as webcasts, that delivers real-world science into classrooms. The series offers 25-minute programs that feature the research and personalities of the Smithsonian's National Museum of Natural History. This gives students the opportunity to get an in-depth, behind the scenes look at the exciting things our scientists are doing.
