The Education Service Center, Region 2 is pleased to announce the award of grant funding from the University of Texas at Austin's Center for STEM Education to support the creation of a Teacher Externship Program during the summer of 2018. Teachers from the Region 2, in Grades 6-12 Math, Science, CTE and HS Special Education/Transition are eligible to apply. Support for the summer Teacher Externship Program is made possible with the collaboration and time commitment from our partners, Flat Iron/Dragados LLC, Hi-Res Media Group, Texas General Land Office and TT Electronics. Selected teachers will engage in ten days of paid, on-site experience with our Coastal Bend industry partners coupled with professional development and facilitated lesson planning to take place at ESC, Region 2. Overall goals for this project are:
(1) engage teachers in learning about STEM industries and workplaces in the community to turn their experiences into classroom lessons, (2) provide a structure for collaboration among teachers and STEM industry partners, and (3) provide opportunities for teachers to share their experiences with students and the larger school community.
