Project ECS@ESC: Encouraging Connections through STEM at the Environmental Study Center (ESC) offers an innovative approach to STEM education combining professional learning, instructional technology, and experiential STEM learning for PreK-12 students and teachers across New York City. Grade 8 and high school teachers can apply to participate in a summer professional development to learn the science of growing food without soil while learning how to infuse hydroponics into science and research classes. Using non-fiction text sets and e-content provided by an Institute of Museum and Library Services grant, participants will learn how to infuse literacy into hands-on science instruction. Participating teachers will receive a mini hydroponic system for classroom use, a trip voucher to ESC for the 2015-2016 school year, access to lessons, digital resources and e-content which supplement the class visit. Teachers should select one of the three session dates to attend. Training rate available. To register, click here.
