AlabamaWorks and the Alabama STEM Council are happy to announce two programs that will help propel Alabama’s STEM workforce forward! The Teacher Externship Program and Scale Up are both accepting applications—but hurry, the deadline is April 30th!
This summer teachers from Alabama will take a hands-on approach to learning as they embark on a teacher externship program. This knowledge will transform learning in the classroom and the teacher’s ability to connect content with student interests and career pathways. There are two ways to participate in the STEM Industry Externship Program:
  • FOR TEACHERS: Apply to participate! The STEM Industry Externship connects STEM educators with careers in this 3-day paid externship! Apply to discover the best answers for when students ask, “when will I ever use this?”.
  • FOR BUSINESS & INDUSTRY: Apply to be a host site! Your company can host an educator or small group of educators, for a 3 or 6-day on-site, experiential learning opportunity. Showcase your business while connecting teachers to STEM career opportunities and awareness.

Are you an organization with a little-known, exceptional STEM program that could benefit from mentorship and funding to help you scale up and reach more students in Alabama?
