People listening to instructor

Please note the July 2020 program has been canceled. 

The Teachers’ Workshop is an annual program specifically designed to provide both new and experienced teachers a dynamic setting in which they can gain new insight into modern biology, and the opportunity to develop and integrate new curriculum material into their science classes. The program is co-sponsored with the Center for Brains, Minds, and Machines with funding from the National Science Foundation.

Teachers from schools with low MCAS scores in science are especially encouraged to apply. There is a limit of two teachers per school.

  • Materials and reagents to take back to their school
  • Up to 40 professional development points (PDPs) per week
