TEP Info

 
The Center has launched the Teacher Enrichment Program (TEP) to assure a future talented and diverse U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).
 
TEP is available at no cost to any teacher interested in broadening his or her perspective of science in the classroom.  TEP is currently available to teachers in California, Florida, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia.

TEP is comprised of four components:
  • ‚ÄčBite of Science brings together middle and high school teachers to learn from and interact with with scientists, engineers, and other professionals in industry, academia, and government.  In these sessions, educators are exposed to cutting-edge research and innovation, after which they have time to ask questions and discuss methodology for connecting the information to their classes.  Bite of Science encourages educators to share with their students the activities and information from the session that may guide them toward academic opportunities and/or careers in STEM fields.
  • Lab Bench includes Bite of Science and seasonal workshop presentation materials and videos, as well as related resources and low-cost activities related to the topics.  We also welcome industry and teacher-contributed resources, and we update the Lab Bench regularly to support middle and high school STEM classrooms.
  • Public/Private Partnerships An effort to increase engagement of the STEM community with local schools and TEP teachers to provide opportunities such as classroom speakers, mentorships, job shadowing, field trips, and additional resources for teachers and their students.
