Get certified as a Salvadori Specialist at a three-day Summer Institute at the Center's most comprehensive introduction to the built world as a living classroom and teaching tool.
Summer Institute participants include regular and out-of-school time educators, who engage the built environment of New York City and receive hands-on exploration of Salvadori lesson plans.
Thanks to all teachers who participated in the 2011 “Art of Construction” Summer Institute in July. Dates for the 2012 Summer Institute will be released early next year.
A limited number of Summer Institute scholarships are awarded to teachers who have an interest in and believe in the effectiveness of Project-based-learning (PBL). Full and partial scholarships are awarded based on available funds and quality and quantity of applicants. Scholarships allow a teacher to participate in the intensive Salvadori Summer Institute and immerse him/herself in the PBL methodology and teaching from the built environment. Scholarship information will be posted in March 2012.
