It is sponsored by Northern Arizona University and the National Science Foundation and is limited to fifteen 6th-12th grade in-service teachers. Participants must attend a 35-hour blended learning workshop consisting of 5 days of face-to-face classes ( 3 days in July and 2 Saturdays to be announced in the fall) and homework.  In addition, participants are to deliver a lesson, collect data and complete evaluation activities. Upon completion of all items, participants will receive a $400 stipend from Northern Arizona University.  CEUs will be available for purchase.
