IB Continuum Workshop
We are excited to share that we will be offering the IB Continuum Workshop again this summer. Last year was our first summer combining efforts with MN IB to provide this institute and based on the outstanding feedback we received, we are offering it again.

The IB Continuum Workshop is 3 days, July 28-30, 2014. This workshop will integrate the trans-disciplinary themes from the Primary Years Programme (PYP), global contexts from the Middle Years Programme (MYP), and the PAGE Framework for Equity and Access in STEM Education. Learn more

PALS: Principals and School Leaders Summer Institute
Encourage your Principal and other school leaders to attend this special institute focused on school level change with regard to access and equity in STEM education.

The goals for the program are to:

  1. Develop a distributed leadership community of school leaders
  2. Create a foundation for STEM equity in our schools and classrooms
  3. Effect change in our schools that will promote the achievement of each and every student in STEM

The institute runs from June 23-27, is free to attend, and is made possible through a generous gift from a private donor. Learn more
