Summer 2020 in Asheville and Wilmington

The North Carolina Science Leadership Association (NCSLA) is partnering with the Center of Excellence for Research, Teaching and Learning (CERTL) at the Wake Forest School of Medicine to provide two 3-day workshops this summer. Both workshops are designed to provide K-12 teachers with inquiry-based lessons in Problem Based Learning that integrate science, math, language arts and other areas of the curriculum, including options for integrating Project Based Learning as well.

Registration is expected to open on February 1st and the fee will be announced at that time.

Upon Completion of the workshop, participants will have permanent access to hundreds of problems and projects to use in their classroom. (This means no additional fee, ever, even if you change schools!)
