The Teacher Institute on Science and Sustainability (TISS) is now accepting applications!
Inspire your students to become active stewards of the environment and make science more relevant and engaging for your students! The institute focuses on energy, green buildings, food, water, and waste and supports teachers to address the California science standards through these sustainability themes.
TISS is an intensive two year professional development opportunity for 3rd – 5th teachers in the Bay Area. The program begins in July and consists of 2 two-week long summer sessions, continuing professional development, and classroom support from Academy educators during the school year.
If that isn’t enough reason to apply, TISS teachers also receive an annual $2000 stipend, a membership to the Academy, a class set of science journals, and more.
