The inaugural Teacher Innovator Institute will teach middle-school educators how to bring the museum experience into their classrooms by exploring connections between informal STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education and authentic learning.

The two-week immersive program will welcome a total of 30 teachers from across the country in summer 2018.

The program will include hands-on activities, museum tours, behind-the-scenes museum experiences, visits to other museums and group work.

Teachers will benefit from the expertise of museum educators and content experts and be able to use aerospace science, history and technology to shape their ideas about authentic learning and bring informal education techniques to their classrooms.

Educators in the program have committed two weeks each summer for three summers. During those two weeks, they will actively participate in sessions led by Smithsonian staff and guests and propose and complete an independent project.
