The TeacherTECH Program at UCSD

About TeacherTECH

SDSC TeacherTECH program helps educators bring new technology tools and technology-enabled science concepts into K-12 curriculum. A mainstay of the SDSC TeacherTECH program is consistency and continuing support for teachers who participate. Its technology, science, and math tools workshops are led by SDSC staff and classroom educators and held in collaboration with SDSC and UCSD researchers. The program offers both academic year and summer training sessions, supported by an information-rich website and follow-up sessions to reinforce new skills and knowledge. This program was once the top resource for San Diego teachers seeking technology skills. TeacherTECH now turns its attention to cutting edge science and science tools for the classroom that can take your curriculum to the next level, thereby empowering your students with new insights into the scientific research being conducted in labs around the world and the science all around us.

TeacherTECH Science Series Seminars Coming Soon!

Join us for an exciting monthly series that focuses on the sciences, from the biological  science to nanoengineering to scientific visualization to chemistry and more! Explore the world of science through computational tools and activities developed at the San Diego Supercomputer Center. Learn new ways to help your students visualize the concepts that they are learning.

Expanding Your Horizons Conference for 6th- 10th Grade Girls
Saturday, March 17, 2017, University of San Diego

At an EYH conference, you will attend talks, participate in hands-on workshops, and meet with women scientists and engineers. You will also spend time with other girls who are thinking about their futures. There is no substitute for personal contact and genuine hands-on activities. No video, no classroom demonstration, no computer, however “interactive,” can replace the experience of an EYH conference.
