6th Grade Teachers: ESTEP 2023 - 25 Summer Boot Camp Schedule and New ONLINE Course Offerings Schedule AVAILABLE now!!!!

By Dana Smith,



The ESTEP 6th grade professional development is a one week, bootcamp style, regional workshop that incorporates earth and space science content with teaching strategies to get you thinking about changing your teacher craft to help your students make sense of science.  We’ll walk you through investigations that you can use no matter where you are in your transition to the new standards - you'll learn about phenomena, storylines and 3-dimensional strategies by DOING the science!
