Free STEM Professional Development for Teachers

St. Mary’s University’s School of Science, Engineering and Technology hosts an ASM Teacher Camp during the summer for math and science teachers of students in grades 6-12.

July 17-21, 2023
St. Mary’s University

ASM Materials Camp®-Teachers is a free, week-long, idea-generating workshop introducing teachers to methods that make math and core science principles more enticing and relevant to their middle and high school students. Materials topics are great motivators in any engineering, technology or science course as students learn concepts that are reflected in their everyday lives.

Teachers leave our camps able to engage students using simple, low-cost experiments that integrate into existing lesson plans. Participants are eligible to receive four Continuing Education Units (CEUs) and can opt for two graduate-level credits.
