The Teacher Externships (TE) Project focuses on summer professional development for middle and high school math and science teachers. As part of this project, teachers visit local companies and organizations to learn where/how math and science is applied in workforce settings. Teachers also learn about employers’ needs, such as teamwork, communication, problem solving, responsibility, and ethics.
