Interested in professional development tied to a camp with your students? Let us know - we're happy to work with you.

Hope sponsors a set of workshops to let you expore inquiry based science, math and engineering topics which are easily integrated into your classroom. Developed in partnership with Hope STEM faculty, the workshops will give you hands-on experience with the topic and provide a forum to discuss with other teachers how to incorporate into your classroom.
