Teach for the Future is a program designed to engage teachers as fellows over the course of a year and beyond, building capacity for delivering maker learning programs to students and advancing student creativity, agency, and empathy.
As educators work to refine their own practice, they develop an identity as “makers,” increasing confidence in delivering STEM content. With an emphasis on embedding maker learning into curriculum and aligning with academic standards, this program will address maker learning pedagogy, culturally responsive and sustaining education, technical skills, and project design.
The multi-day summer intensive is followed by ongoing learning opportunities throughout the year (virtual and in-person), and is suitable for K-8 classroom teachers and individuals with school-wide roles (Media Specialists, STEM Specialists, Content Specialists, etc.).
