Duties

The NIST Summer Institute Program is a hands-on career development workshop where middle school science teachers are able to take advantage of resources from the nation's premier standards and measurement laboratory, NIST. The workshop will provide teachers with instructional materials and ideas to use in their teaching and will emphasize the measurement science done at NIST. The aim is to take a selection of the cutting-edge research at NIST and help the teachers translate this experience through hands-on activities involving classroom-based learning modules. In addition to obtaining ideas and activities to incorporate into lesson plans, teaching tools are directly provided to allow the teachers to carry out activities they learned at the NIST Summer Institute Program with their students. The NIST Summer Institute Program will provide a world-class opportunity for those teaching our nation's next generation of scientists to learn more about the subjects they teach and the research in those subjects conducted at NIST and to offer a platform from which teachers can inspire their students to pursue careers in science and related fields.
