Science Week at Pittcon – Orlando 2018
Teachers and students will appreciate the generous Science Week options at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando this February. This is an annual event offering professional development, outreach programs and grant money from the proceeds of the Pittcon convention.
The weekend of February 24 - 25, K-12 teachers can attend workshops offering professional development covering a variety of topics. A small registration fee required to reserve a spot for teacher workshops is refunded at the event. Lunch and parking are both covered by Science Week. Individual teachers that attend can receive 500 dollars to purchase resources for their classrooms. Schools that send a team of teachers can receive up to 2000 dollars in grant money. These grants are provided on a first come first serve basis. Schools within a 150 mile radius of Orlando will receive first priority, but there may be grants available for those outside if funds permit.
Science Week also offers student workshops for 1st through 4th grade on Monday and Tuesday (February 26 - 27) and for 5th through 7th grade on Wednesday and Thursday (February 28 - March 1). There are a wide variety of workshop topics to choose from. Best of all, these workshops are completely FREE! Registration closes February 16, 2018.
