Summer opportunity in STEM

posted May 24, 2016, 10:41 AM by Barbara Fortunato

Hello all,

I wanted to pass along an opportunity that may be of interest to some of your high school students:  Rider's School of Education is hosting a summer STEM Teacher Academy for rising sophomores and juniors who have an interest in teaching and STEM disciplines.  This year's Academy will focus on ecological research  and sustainability. 

The Academy will be held Monday through Friday from July 11 to July 22 on Rider's Lawrenceville Campus.  It is grant-funded so there is no program fee; students will be provided with breakfast, lunch, and a small travel stipend (housing is not available).  Interested students must complete an application, essay, and interview with Rider staff.

If you have a student interested in applying, please direct them to the following URL to learn more about the program and access the link to the application:

Attached is a flyer for the program, too.  If you have any questions, I can direct you to the program's coordinator.

Looking forward to seeing all of you on May 20th.
