Programs for Educators

Excellent science, math and technology teachers are the long-term solution to increasing the number of students interested in science, math and technology. Strong teaching creates engaged students. Please look over our programs for experienced science, math and technology teachers as well as the programs for early career teachers.

PIPES Science Educator Academy (currently undergoing redevelopment)

The PIPES Educator Academy is designed for teachers (6th grade and up) who would like to increase their content knowledge in physics, chemistry, biology, and geology while also exploring inquiry based teaching techniques for the secondary classroom.

The Pikes Peak Math Teacher Circle

The Pikes Peam Math Teacher Circle (PPMTC) is an opportunity to learn strategies that create an atmosphere of creative problem solving for students as well as engage in a vibrant learning community of area teachers, mathematicians, and professionals. Learn how to infuse critical thinking and problem solving skill into an already busy math curriculum.

The PIPEline Partnership

The vision of the Pipeline Partnership is to support classroom teachers by providing opportunities for engaging students in innovative hands-on science experiences that bring together scientific thinking, literacy, and math skills around an in depth, hands-on science project. The UCCS Center for STEM Education offers a variety of ways for educators to provide this invaluable opportunity to their students, including workshop field trips to UCCS, and in-school training sessions for educators in our workshop topics and method of inquiry-based learning!
