Are you a teacher working in the Boston area?

The Stone Living Lab and National Parks of Boston are thrilled to announce the first Stone Living Lab Summer Teacher Institute! This free, five-day course from July 25-29 will bring Boston area teachers together to explore Boston Harbor through the lens of climate change, place-based learning, and citizen science.

Together, we will learn from local experts about climate resilience work happening in and around Boston; discover opportunities to bring students to the coast; and learn how citizen science can bring authentic scientific experiences to the classroom. At the end of the course, participants will develop a capstone project, lesson, or curriculum that can be used by schools across Boston Harbor. Participants will also receive three graduate school credits from Framingham State University upon completion of the course.

This year we will welcome five to eight Boston area teachers to join scientists, architects, Park rangers, and community members for Climate Change in the City: Activating Boston’s Harbor Campus as a Living Classroom. We especially encourage teams of two teachers or more from the same school to apply to the Institute. View the application to find out how to apply as a teacher team.

Applications are now open and due May 15th. Find out more and complete your application today!
