Applications for the AirUCI Summer Teacher Workshop are now closed.


The AirUCI Institute held our tenth annual—and final—Summer Teacher Workshop on June 20 – July 2, 2014.   Unfortunately, we are unable to continue offering this course.  200 teachers over 10 years took part in this workshop, each teaching 100-200 and more students in subsequent school years, so we're very proud of the influence this program has had and will continue to have in grades 7-12 education.   ...
