The Academy for Future Teachers from Georgia State invites Atlanta’s bright, talented and diverse high school students to explore a career teaching math or science. STEM-focused students are also a great fit.
From 8:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily for three weeks, high school participants will connect to build teaching and communication skills. Applying STREAM concepts, small teams dig deep into current, real-world challenges and then devise engaging ways to teach the answers they uncover. AFT spotlights the professional and academic skills educators need — practical skills every student and future STREAM leader can use.
Best of all — high school students will teach real students every week! Real middle school and pre-K students give students essential real-world feedback that helps these future educators spotlight the professional and academic skills they need while deciding what goals are right for them.
Join Us June 3-20, 2024 on Georgia State’s downtown campus.
Will you be a freshman, sophomore, junior or senior in fall 2024 and are considering teaching or a STEM career, complete the application below to join AFT 2024!
