NIU STEAM Virtual Summer Institute

STEAM up your summer learning at the NIU STEAM Virtual Summer Institute. Starting on July 6, the NIU STEAM team is offering four interactive weeks of professional development. Each week you’ll connect with NIU STEAM team members, industry experts and educators just like you who are looking to add some STEAM to their classroom.

Each week you’ll engage in approximately six hours of activities, including a live virtual session, informational videos and articles, slow chat discussions, an expert panel and live coaching sessions. At the end of each week you’ll have new ideas and strategies for STEAM learning in or out of the classroom – including ideas perfect for blended and remote learning for all grade levels.

Registration for one week is $50. Sign up for all four weeks for $175 per person. All participants who successfully complete a week-long session can earn up to six PDHs and the NIU STEAM Digital Badge for that week.
