Teacher Externship and NC New Schools

This past summer the institute partnered with North Carolina New Schools to help provide NC area teachers professional experiences so they may acquire new knowledge and skills to enable them to introduce concepts at the frontiers of STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) within the context of regenerative medicine – an exciting, cutting-edge field representative of today’s highly interdisciplinary nature of science.
