Each year, the Texas Chemical Council (TCC) and the Association of Chemical Industry of Texas (ACIT) are proud to host an annual Science Teachers and Industry (STI) Workshop. The STI Workshop provides Texas science teachers in grades 5-12 with educational information about the chemical manufacturing industry and its impact on the environment and the surrounding communities. This valuable insight helps the teachers positively influence their instruction to hundreds of students each year. With outstanding leadership from the TCC Outreach Committee and our partnership with the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE), the 2017 STI Workshop had a great turnout of science teachers, with very positive feedback from all participants.
We are currently enrolling teachers for the 2018 workshop. The 2018 STI Workshop will be held at the Harris County Department of Education (HCDE) Building from July 16-19, 2018 in Houston, Texas. The workshop is provided free of charge through corporate sponsorships. Teachers who complete all 4 days of the workshop will receive a $300 stipend courtesy of the TCC. Teachers also receive 30 CPE hours and 6 G/T update hours. There are 60 spots available, with 23 openings currently remaining. Registration will stay open until Friday, July 13th, or until all of the spots are filled. To find out more about the workshop or to register, please use the following link: https://adobe.ly/2HvdvCk
