Fall 2018 TEP professional enrichment sessions are underway. What a wonderful series of sessions we have had thus far in Virginia and Pennsylvania! Check out the Bite of Science and Teacher Roundtable pages for the latest schedule and registration information for upcoming sessions in northern California, Maryland, and Virginia. Invites for events will arrive in inboxes one month prior the event. Seating is limited, so don’t delay in registering.  TEP events are a great way to connect with scientists and engineers in your community! The Winter/Spring 2019 schedule with workshops held in southern California, Florida, Texas, Virginia, and West Virginia will be posted on the website in December.
Don’t forget: CEE is here to connect you with our speakers and organizations to support you in the classroom. Please get in touch with Kim Edwards, CEE’s Education Programs Outreach Manager, if you’d like to be connected to scientists or engineers to visit your classroom, provide additional resources, or assist with student projects.
