Join the next PDI!

The next Summer PDI will occur July 23-25, 2019. High school teachers from DC public schools and DC public charter schools will be given preference for course acceptance. Teachers from DC who complete the course, borrow materials for their classroom, and complete the curriculum with their students will receive a stipend. Registration for this summer’s PDI is open. Register Here!  

 

The ABE-DC Summer Professional Development Institute (PDI) for high school teachers took place in July 2018 at Carnegie Science. Completing the ABE Summer PDI will certify teachers to borrow research-grade biotech equipment for their classrooms.
