Teachers in Industry
Teachers in Industry integrates paid summer industry work experiences in local businesses across Arizona together with either a focused Master's of Artsin Teaching and Teacher Education or professional development credits. These activities are based in the science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) disciplines as well as teacher education & training. Teachers in Industry focuses on guiding teachers to effectively bring their real world experiences into classrooms while building in-depth and practical knowledge of the workplace, and is open to all Arizona STEM teachers.
Teachers learn from immersion in a real-world industry experience and gain from their exposure to these organizations. In return, companies directly benefit from the skills and knowledge teachers bring to their workforce each summer.
