​​Teacher Externships

How many times have you heard a student ask, “When will I ever use this?”

During the summer, educators have a chance to work side-by-side with knowledgeable and skilled industry employees who help bring the classroom curriculum to life. Teacher Externships provide educators with the exposure to answer questions about real-world application, prepare students for careers, and improve educational experiences.
