High Tech U Teacher Academy Programs

Thanks to the success of previous High Tech U Teacher Academy programs, Boeing is once again funding Maricopa Community Colleges, through MATEC, to support 36 teachers to attend a two-day hands-on workshop. We are offering the 2016 High Tech U Teacher Academy on Friday, February 19th and Saturday February 20th, 2016 at Phoenix College.

As in previous years, we are awarding fellowships to teams of teachers to cover the cost of registration, professional development hours, and stipends. See more details below.

Finally, please note that only one teacher from each team needs to be from a STEM/CTE discipline.
