Teacher Workshop

To kick off the year, teachers are invited and strongly encouraged to attend the annual GNOSEF Teacher Workshop at the STEM Library Lab. We will be hosting two different workshops on Saturday, August 24th from 9am-12pm and Saturday, October 5th from 9-11am. Teachers are welcome to attend one or both workshops. Please complete the form below to register for the workshop. Priority is given to teachers from Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, and St. Bernard Parishes.

In order to ensure that you will have a spot in the PD, we are requiring a $20 deposit fee. If attending both workshops, teachers only need to submit one deposit.

  • August 24th – Each teacher will receive a $75 stipend upon completion of the 3-hour workshop.
  • October 5th – Each teacher will receive a $50 stipend upon completion of the 2-hour workshop.
In order to receive each stipend and the refund of the deposit, teachers must be present for the full time of the workshop(s) for which they register (3 hours of workshop 1 and/or 2 hours of workshop 2).

Presentations by experienced teachers will address finding opportunities and overcoming obstacles while providing important information needed to participate in the GNOSEF. Topics for the August workshop include: getting started in your classroom, getting started with project prior approvals, and learning about resources and mentors provided by the GNOSEF. The October workshop will focus more on the paperwork needed for each participant. Teachers will practice filling out sample ISEF forms including the research plan.

Attendees will be awarded a certificate after the three or two hour training session, which can be submitted to their school district for requesting CLU (Continuing Learning Unit) credits. There will also be brief presentations on the timeline for participating in the GNOSEF and an overview of the more than $60,000 in awards, prizes, and grants for students, teachers and schools.
