Materials & Manufacturing Summer Teachers’ Institute (MMSTI)

The Materials and Manufacturing Summer Teachers’ Institute is a school-to-career initiative that targets STEM skills instruction for grades 7-12 in the New Haven and Bridgeport Public Schools.

Three-day workshop designed to:

  • Connect educators with industry professionals to discuss major challenges and their potential solutions, adequately preparing students for the growing demands of a 21st century workforce.
  • Provide teachers first-hand knowledge of local manufacturing demands and connect these processes to the science curriculum to help teachers create lesson plans based on these industrial experiences.
  • Since its launch, 123 educators have participated in the MMSTI (66 female, 22 URM, 75 from urban school districts).
