2020 PATHMAKER BRIDGE Summer Program for Educators


This two-year summer research and curriculum development experience is for middle and high school science teachers who work with students from underrepresented groups. Teachers spend six weeks during two consecutive summers working in a research laboratory at Huntsman Cancer Institute. Before and after the six-week experience, teachers will participate in pre- and post- professional development courses delivered online by science education professionals from the University of Utah Genetic Science Learning Center (GSLC). With support from the pre- and post- development courses, participants will bring their experience to the classroom by developing and testing curriculum materials related to their research.
