The Joint Science and Technology Institute (JSTI) is a program funded by the DoD to promote STEM in schools. Only 12 teachers from around the U.S. were selected to participate in this 2-week research program. The other teachers seem very knowledgeable and passionate about the STEM programs at their schools. We’re all hoping to have an experience that we can share with our students about how rewarding and exciting STEM, particularly research, can be. Of course, I had to take a selfie of the group of teachers.
