Since TEP's launch in 2012, 289 scientists and engineers from industry, academia, and government have participated in a Bite of Science or STEM Teacher Workshop. Over 2,255 teachers have taken advantage of these opportunities to hear about cutting-edge research and development and make connections with STEM professionals in their community.  All Bite of Science videos and supporting materials can be found on the TEP Lab Bench in the Bite of Science Presentations drawer following every event.
Those interested in participating in a future Bite of Science session are invited to contact the TEP Director, Natasha Schuh-Nuhfer, to discuss this exciting opportunity to connect with middle and high school STEM teachers in their community!
