UtSTA Summer Courses

UtSTA offers week-long endorsement courses over the summer months in partnership with Brigham Young University, Utah Valley University, and Southern Utah University.  All courses are taught by highly qualified instructors that have experience in K-12 classrooms like yours.  The classes are designed to be hand-on and inquiry based so that teachers can learn the lessons/techniques and take them back to use in their classrooms.  Each class lasts for only one week and generally starts Monday and ends Friday.


  • The cost for each course is $550 for a current UtSTA Member and $800 for a Non UtSTA Member (Join UtSTA and save significantly). This covers the price of the instructor, class location, supplies, food (lunch and snacks), and university credit recording fees. The UtSTA Astronomy & Geology courses, held at the UVU Capitol Reef Field Station, will cost an additional $100 for overnight lodging and meals.
  • Participants are responsible for all travel, evening meals, and (for courses that are not at UVU Capitol Reef Field Station) lodging costs. 
  • The registration cost includes the fee to post the University Credit to a transcript. There is no requirement that participants are a matriculated student at the university to earn credit.
