We seek high school science teachers to work collaboratively during the summer as well as during the school year. Pairs of teachers working as teams are especially encouraged to apply. The 2022 program is open to high school teachers of biology, physics, and chemistry from schools in the Philadelphia region. Participants must commit to a 7-week summer program and agree to develop and integrate a curriculum module into their teaching practice during the academic year.

Attend the Annual Symposium to learn about more mechanobiology research.
