For Educators - Kids' Tech University (KTU)    

For Educators

We are excited to offer educator workshops in conjunction with the KTU program.
Educators will learn it, teach it, and take it back to the classroom.

Interact with:
•  Scientists
•  Technology Experts
•  Engineers
•  Mathematicians

You will engage in an exciting, hands-on teaching experience, and then apply what you learned in a unique, first-hand teaching environment with 3rd-6th graders. You will also be able to participate in ongoing community blogs and network with other teachers and education specialists.

Participating educators will receive a certificate showing contact hours of professional development.

This program is ideal for elementary and middle school teachers, out of school time educators, or others interested in STEM teaching.
