Georgia Tech partners with Honeywell on STEM teacher training program

Georgia Tech and the Honeywell company announced Thursday a partnership to provide advanced teaching techniques to select middle and high school teachers in metro Atlanta in science, technology, engineering and math.

Participating school districts include Atlanta, Cobb, DeKalb, Fulton and Gwinnett.

Twenty-five teachers will receive four weeks of intensive summer training in software engineering and computing. Selected teachers must have strong superintendent and principal recommendations.

Teachers will have access to Georgia Tech’s computing research and Honeywell engineers, who will serve as mentors and coaches.

There will also be an annual STEM Teacher Leadership Program Symposium, where alumni and other teachers and leaders can attend additional academic and networking activities at Georgia Tech.
