SENSEsational Science

We're excited to announce that for the first time, SENSEsational Science is open to all PreK-12th grade educators! Spend your summer getting paid to visit some of the most exciting attractions and nature areas in Tulsa. You will make friends with fellow teachers excited to learn new ways to engage students in STEAM while meeting academic standards. The best part, you do not need to be a science teacher to attend! Actually, we encourage teachers from all content areas to apply. This workshop focuses on building community relationships while encouraging STEAM in the classroom.

If you've been through Year 1 of "SENSE," you are encouraged to apply again as a Year 2 member. Simply complete the application and indicate on the form in the space provided that you have previously attended. Year 2 members will have a different experience than Year 1.

Lunches are provided daily for all participants.
