Teacher Workshops

Please note: Because of the novel coronavirus pandemic, all in-person College of Science summer programming has been cancelled, including summer camps and the teacher professional development workshop.

We apologize for this inconvenience, but our main concern is the health and safety of our faculty, staff, students, and participants and their families as we work to #FlattenTheCurve. We are planning to move some programming to an online format. Please check back on this page for updates.

Questions regarding participants who already have registered for our camps or other programming can be sent to Victoria Corbin at cvictoria@vt.edu.
