Ever wondered what it really takes to be a great teacher?
Three weeks this summer can answer your questions.
IMPORTANT APPLICATION UPDATE
AFT’20 is now full and has a waiting list. The application window has closed.
The Academy for Future Teachers (AFT’20) at Georgia State invites Atlanta’s bright, talented and diverse high school students to explore a career teaching math or science — virtually. STEM career track students are also a great fit!
For three weeks 6/15-7/3, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily, high school participants from all over Atlanta connect to build teaching and communication skills. Applying STEM concepts, small teams dig deep into current, real-world challenges, 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 leader can use.
AFT ’20 welcomes students who have completed their sophomore or junior year by May, 2020. Academically strong and educator-track freshmen and college-bound seniors may also apply.
