Expenses Paid Professional Development Opportunity
Teachers Institute opportunities are virtually free for the participants. The grant to attend a TI covers transportation, hotel, a modest per-diem to cover meals. Instructional resources for the electronics, microcontroller, and robotics segments of the course, and a resource library of relevant ARRL publications are provided to participants of the introductory Teachers Institute (TI-1). Hands-on instructional resources and equipment applicable to the topic of the advanced Teachers Institiute (TI-2) are also provided through donations to the Education & Technology Program Fund and through in-kind contributions from our industry partners. A $100 enrollment fee is required.
Review the Teachers Institute agendas linked below for more detailed information.
Applicants must be teaching in a school, college, or professional educational organization serving grade levels 4-12+, or leading a school-affiliated enrichment program in an official capacity.
An Amateur Radio license is NOT required to attend the introductory seminar (TI-1), but IS required to attend the advanced Teachers Institute seminars.
