Summer Algae Science Institute (In-Person)

July 26 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm


Educators: are you interested in giving your students more hands-on STEM learning opportunities? Are you ready to roll up your sleeves and learn more about algae? If so, sign up for the (in-person or virtual) Algae Foundation’s Summer Algae Science Institute (SASI)!

Sign up here!

SASI is a 1-day professional development opportunity that walks you through the Algae Foundation’s K-12 Algae Academy curriculum. The Algae Academy’s FREE STEM kit and curriculum includes teacher resources, all necessary lab supplies, and live algae that will have your students asking big questions as they realize the real potential of algae.

Students cultivate algae, monitor its growth, analyze and interpret data, and make connections as to how algae production positively impacts the global environment. Or as we like to say, we take algae from “Ick!” to “Awesome!”

SASI is appropriate for K-12 STEM educators looking to offer hands-on, NGSS aligned curriculum to their students. The curriculum is broken down into Elementary, Middle and High School levels. SASI participants will have the opportunity to teach the Algae Academy to their students in the 2024/2025 academic year in the Fall (October/November) or Spring (March/April).

SASI training will include:
  • Stipend for attendance ($75 virtual/ $100 in-person)
  • I Love Algae T-shirt (the really soft kind)
  • A complete walkthrough of the Algae Academy’s 5-day curriculum
  • Algae Academy mini-kit shipped to your home so you can complete the lab. (virtual only)
  • Guaranteed spot in 2024/2025 Algae Academy
After completing the SASI training, educators should feel confident bringing the Algae Academy into their classrooms and getting their students excited about the power of algae!
