PROMISE Educator Enrichment Workshop
The PROMISE Educator Enrichment Workshop is designed to empower middle school and high school teachers to develop and implement lesson plans in the biomedical sciences. The program will provide hands-on activities in project-based learning, covering a variety of topics that include genetic screening, diagnosing diabetes, and drug discovery. The program will also provide access to the tools needed for implementing these lesson plans in the classroom.
Science Educator Research Fellowship Program
The Science Educator Research Fellowship provides K-12 science teachers with training in health research with a focus on pediatric approaches. Participants conduct independent community-based or biomedical research under the supervision of a Sanford scientist. At the culmination of the program, Fellows will appreciate and understand health research approaches for meaningful translation into their classroom activities.
Project Lead The Way
Project Lead The Way (PLTW) is the leading provider of rigorous and innovative STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) education curricular programs used in schools. As a non-profit organization, PLTW exists to prepare students for the global economy through its world-class curriculum, high-quality professional development, and an engaged network of educators, students, universities, and professionals. Sanford Research recently partnered with PLTW as a Biomedical Affiliate to promote STEM education across the Northern Plains.
The Sanford PROMISE Community Lab, Sanford Center, Sioux Falls, SD
In the heart of Sanford Research lies a state-of-the-art research lab that provides research space and equipment resources for the community. Public and private groups are welcome to utilize the space for research endeavors. Hands-on activities can be facilitated by the PROMISE team or the equipment in the lab space may be used for activities/projects developed by our guests under the supervision of PROMISE scientists.
The Sanford PROMISE believes every student should have access to the resources (quality teachers, relevant lessons, high-tech equipment, and mentors) to pursue careers in science and research. As a result, we are committed to sharing resources and supplies with schools. Click on this link
