Are you a teacher working in the Boston area?

Join the Stone Living Lab and National Parks of Boston for our Stone Living Lab Summer Teacher Institute! This free, five-day course brings 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.

The 2022 teacher institute finished in july. applications for the 2023 institute will open in spring 2023.
