Ever wondered what it really takes to be a great teacher?
Three weeks this summer can answer your questions.
The Academy for Future Teachers (AFT’21) from Georgia State invites Atlanta’s bright, talented and diverse high school students to explore a career teaching math or science — virtually. STEM-focused students are also a great fit.
From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily for three weeks, high school participants will connect to build teaching and communication skills. Applying STEM 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 STEM leader can use.
The future of teaching & learning is hybrid.
To ensure safety, AFT’21 will be virtual. This is a plus because the teachers and leaders in the 21st century must navigate and flourish working both face-to-face and online. Come explore the possibilities!
Join us next spring when AFT’22 returns to Georgia State’s downtown campus.
If you will be a sophomore, junior or senior in spring 2022 and are considering teaching or a STEM career, complete the short Student Form below, and we will send you AFT’22 information next spring.
