We look forward to welcoming a full class of stellar AFT’22 participants this June!
The Academy for Future Teachers (AFT’22) 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 next spring for AFT’23 on Georgia State’s downtown campus.
