Teacher Workshop

To kick off the year, teachers are invited and strongly encouraged to attend the annual GNOSEF Teacher Workshop on Saturday, September 7th, from 9:00am to 1:00pm at Tulane University in the Lindy Boggs Center (building 15 on the campus map). Lunch will be provided. 

Unfortunately, all spots with stipends have been filled.  Please complete the form below to register for the workshop so we have an accurate count for lunch. The teacher workshop is now full

Teachers also have the option to stay for an additional hour from 1-2pm to meet the teacher mentors, discuss box.com, or any other questions regarding participating in the GNOSEF. Teacher mentors are all former science teachers in the area and all are part of the Scientific Review Committee of the GNOSEF (committee that reviews all projects that are submitted). These teacher mentors can come to your school and help with paperwork and question development or give presentations to teachers/administrators at your school.

Presentations by experienced teachers will address finding opportunities and overcoming obstacles, while providing important information needed to participate in the GNOSEF. Attendees will be awarded a certificate after the five-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.

This year’s topics include:

  • Why is this Important to the World? – Learn how to work with your students to develop meaningful, testable questions and how to use those questions to develop a Research Plan.
  • Getting through the GNOSEF/ISEF Paperwork – Assistance and mentorship with knowing what forms need to be submitted along with timelines for submission and ISEF changes for 2020.
