The NIST Summer Institute brings together teachers and NIST scientists and engineers for two weeks of hands-on science based on the cutting edge measurement science research at NIST, and designed to match the middle school curricula. The pie chart below represents a typical session and demonstrates the variety of activities experienced by participants.
Since 2007, the program has helped increase understanding and awareness of science in middle school teachers in Maryland. In 2010 the NIST Summer Institute expanded to offer teachers from across the United States an opportunity to participate.
