Museum Institute for Teaching Science (MITS) 2014
Coming Summer 2014
MITS promotes high quality, inquiry-based, hands-on science education and STEM educational initiatives through collaborations among museums, aquariums, nature centers, and other non-profit organizations with traditional education institutions. The Summer Institutes are two-week professional development workshops that model, teach, and encourage teachers to use inquiry-based, hands-on methods of teaching STEM subjects in their classrooms. All activities are linked to State Frameworks and include interdisciplinary connections. PDPs and graduate credit apply.
Berkshire Museum is the lead educator and host for the Summer Institutes in the Berkshire region. For more information, call 413.443.7171, ext 19 or go to the MITS website, www.mits.org.
