2021 AGI AND EXXONMOBIL K-8 EARTH SCIENCE AND STEM TEACHER LEADERSHIP ACADEMY
The American Geosciences Institute & ExxonMobil Exploration are pleased to announce that they are currently recruiting teachers for the 13th annual national Geoscience and STEM Teacher Leadership Academy for K-8 teachers. The 2021 academy will begin with an introductory webinar in early July, with the main academy experience taking place July 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 29. The academy will be held virtually and will include teachers from across the country.
The academy will provide teachers with Earth science content, access to and guides for hands-on activities, resources to develop professional development workshops, educational resources, networking with other educators, and experiences that they can use with their students in the classroom and with their colleagues in professional development settings.
We will select up to 30 participants, who are recognized by their school and/or school system as having potential as a teacher leader. Each participant will receive a $500 stipend, plus up to $200 for equipment and supplies upon completion of the academy. While individual applicants will be considered, we encourage teams of two to four from across grade levels or science subject matter areas to apply from a state, school district, or school.
The applicant review process will start April 1, 2021 and continue until the academy is full. Applying early is highly recommended.
