Teacher Professional Development Scholarships

Hands-on outdoor learning is proven to accelerate and deepen student comprehension, improve long-term recall, and increase engagement. So Out Teach equips teachers to use the outdoors to give students access to exciting, real-world Science experiences, weaving critical STEM, literacy, and 21st Century skills, like critical thinking and collaboration, into every school day.  Occasionally, Out Teach is able to offer scholarships to teachers in targeted markets.  These opportunities empower educators to use their existing outdoor spaces to bring Science to life, integrate Science across subject areas, and inspire students of all backgrounds with authentic hands-on Science learning, adding meaning and context to every subject, and sparking students’ love of learning and discovery.
