Summer Fellowships

What We Do

Each summer for the past 34 years, we have partnered with local companies, universities, and research labs to create unique opportunities for educators to get hands-on experience applying STEM concepts to solve real-world problems.

Our Summer Fellowship is a full-time, eight-week placement where each Ignited Teacher Fellow works with an experienced mentor to complete a meaningful project for their host organization.

Over the course of the summer, Ignited Coaches train teachers to incorporate learnings into new curriculum to engage and inspire students when they return to the classroom.

“Our Summer Fellow added valuable perspective and insights that helped set us up for success
in the next phase of our project.
