2013 Boeing Teacher Institute: Exploring California Marine Life

The Aquarium of the Pacific, through a generous grant from The Boeing Company, is proud to offer the 2013 Boeing Teacher Institute. The institute will take place from Thursday, August 1st to Monday, August 5th. The Aquarium is partnering with the University of Southern California Sea Grant and the Wrigley Institute for Environmental Studies to provide up to 35 teachers the opportunity to participate in this week long intensive introduction to the Aquarium, Southern California’s diverse ecosystems, and the most current research being conducted by local scientists. Each participant will receive their own aquarium complete with filtration. The program includes a behind-the-scenes look at the Aquarium of the Pacific, three days on Catalina Island, and continuing involvement in an on-line professional development community.
The deadline for the application is June 18, 2013. Participants will be notified of acceptance in mid July. Teachers not selected for the August program will be invited to participate in other teacher workshops at the Aquarium in the fall of 2013.
Thank you for your interest in the 2013 Boeing Teacher Institute!
