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.
Due to the generosity of The STEM Action Center, the cost for each course has been dropped to $250 for a current UtSTA Member and $400 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.
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.
