Thanks to our generous partners, teachers participating in the WOW Summer Workshop enjoy all expenses paid. In addition to lodging, all meals during the workshop, and ground transportation while you’re here, we’re also able to reimburse travel expenses up to $1000.00.

 

The WOW program starts by building STEM capacity for teachers with an intensive professional development experience. Teachers become Osprey experts during a week-long, interactive, and field-based summer institute at the University of Montana. Join peers, researchers, and STEM professionals to experience real, interactive field work as you collect data, band Osprey chicks, see flight physics in action, visit ecologically important sites, and more.

“Probably the best and most useful professional development I have ever done in 27 years of teaching. The access to research scientists was incredible.”

“This workshop is definitely among the top three I have attended in my career as an educator. We were able to spend the majority of the day being taught by research professionals with experience in the field that they are teaching. “
