Want some great teacher lead PD that focuses around solving your own problems of practice? Have 8 Saturdays this coming academic year to spend problem solving and collaborating with like-minded colleagues? Don't mind stipend money?

Read about the fellowship below!

The mission of the program is to build democratic teaching expertise in Boston teachers, empowering them to engage low-income, minority youth in STEM subjects. Through democratic learning experiences, students construct identities of themselves as capable citizens who use critical science agency to transform their own lives and bring about positive change in their communities.

Fellows who are selected for the program participate in a community of practice with like-minded STEM educators. Twice over the course of the year, Fellows publish a 3-5 minute digital story demonstrating a new democratic teaching practice. In January and May, Fellows and a group of their students participate in the annual Sci-Ed Innovators Expo & Symposium. Fellow who complete the program will receive a $2000 stipend.

If you’d like to learn more about the Fellowship, you can read the fellowship information page, or ask me about my experience. The application for the Fellowship can be accessed online, and application will be accepted on a rolling basis, with a final deadline on August 4th.
