SEP offers teachers skills and experience in science education that they simply cannot get anywhere else – in the labs of Fred Hutch. This is coupled with a unique blend of support from their scientist mentors, experienced lead teachers and program staff. SEP helps teachers tap into a powerful network of peers that they can rely on throughout their careers. Also, SEP teachers have access to teaching Kits that contain equipment that many schools cannot afford.
SEP curricula combines engaging scenarios with hands-on experiences to ignite newfound passion in students who may never have shown an interest in science. It helps students gain insight into the real-world applications of the materials they’re learning in school and get a feel for what it would be like to work as a scientist.
During 2016, SEP will work with existing SEP teachers to revise SEP kit-related learning experiences and curriculum.
We will not be hosting a new cohort in 2016, but hope you will apply for our 2017 cohort.
