Are you a teacher working in the Boston area? 

Join the Stone Living Lab and National Parks of Boston each summer 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 participatory science.

Together, we learn from local experts about climate resilience work happening in and around Boston; discover opportunities to bring students to the coast; and learn how participatory 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 also receive three graduate school credits from Framingham State University upon completion of the course.

Applications for the 2024 Institute have closed.
