St. Bonaventure University

K-12 Science & Math Teacher Workshop

An annual summer lab development workshop for K-12 math and science teachers with instructors from the university's departments of biology, chemistry, physics, computer science and psychology.

Logos of the National Science Foundation and BOCESThe summer K–12 Science & Math Teacher Workshop has two goals:

  1. To bring K-12 science teachers, school administrators and SBU science faculty together for a continuing discussion on bridging the gap between K-12 and college STEM education. 
  2. To provide a hands-on experience for K-12 teachers to develop integrative lessons. 
The workshop encourages the recognition of opportunities for networking and new short- and long-term partnerships between K-12 schools and St. Bonaventure's math and science departments, or between individual K-12 schools.

Workshop activities are designed to be transferable to K-12 classrooms so that teachers may stimulate student interest in STEM education and increase their readiness to pursue STEM careers.

New York State Continuing Teacher/Leader Education (CTLE) credits are provided by Cattaraugus/Allegany BOCES.
