About the program

AirUCI Institute is offering an accredited two-week summer training workshop for high-school (grades 9-12) science teachers funded by the National Science Foundation. The workshop was offered in the summers of 2005, 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, and 2013 and it will be offered for the last time in the summer of 2014. The workshop program consists of lectures by the AirUCI faculty members  in the mornings followed by laboratory or computer work in the afternoons. The lab work primarily focuses on environmental problems. The program features a $1000 stipend, free lunches, and free UCI parking. It is equivalent to six quarter credit units administered through the UCI Extension. To learn more about this workshop please refer to a presentation about this program made by Prof. Sergey Nizkorodov at the 2008 National Academies' Chemical Sciences Roundtable (CSR) workshop "Strengthening High School Chemistry Education through Teacher Outreach Programs" and to a feature article about the workshop written in 2010. Finally, please check out the course syllabi for the previous years (see below). Also check out the photos of the participants below - chances are that they are your colleagues or people you know.

Registration for the 2014 workshop is now open. Please go to the AirUCI website to apply.
