Utilizing the 5E Instructional Model as a framework for lesson design, teachers will delve into the new Louisiana Student Standards for Science focusing on the practice of science, the 5E Instructional Model, and how to help students develop models to explain scientific phenomena. Teachers should bring full charged laptops to the session.

Participating teachers will receive a $50 stipend thanks to support from the Joe W. and Dorothy Dorsett Brown Foundation. Core Element Summer STEM Institute workshops are free to teachers in the Greater New Orleans region. A $25 refundable fee is required at registration, however the fee is refunded at the completion of each workshop. Teachers from schools outside the region may attend for a nominal charge.

Both sessions are 9 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. To learn more about Core Element’s Summer STEM Institute, call 504-280-5715 or contact Tracey Zelden at or Michelle Mangum at
