Intel International Science and Engineering Fair (Intel ISEF)- Professional Development Opportunity!

Sixty Idaho public high school teachers will be selected to participate in a two day professional development workshop and receive guidance on how to embed Intel ISEF projects into existing classroom instruction.

If selected, the educator’s school will receive $3,000 to be used for participation in Intel ISEF. Educators will use the funds to travel to their local university (U of I, ISU, or BSU) to attend the two day professional development in August 2016. Educators can use the remaining funds to purchase classroom materials for student projects. Funds will also be used for the educator to return to their regional fair with at least three student projects to compete in spring 2017. Funds can also be used for educator stipends and/or professional development credits.
