2019 ConocoPhillips & Phillips 66 Summer Science Institute
for Middle School Teachers

 June 3 – June 7 (Early afternoon) 2019  (Check-In Sunday Evening – June 2)

Enroll today for a five-day learning experience, full of fun and excitement at the campus of OSSM in the center of Oklahoma City. Meals and housing (for those who wish to stay on campus) will be provided.

Back by popular demand, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, and OSSM are sponsoring the 2019 Summer Science Institute. The Institute is intended to provide Middle School Science Teachers with knowledge and hands-on experience in Engineering, Geoscience, Life and Physical Sciences. Teachers can increase their science background while being offered new opportunities in delivering knowledge and skills in their classroom instruction. Two excursions to the FAA Civil Aerospace Medical Institute and INTEGRIS Cancer Institute/ProCure Proton Therapy Center will provide first hand learning experiences in these world-class facilities. To conclude the Institute, participants will get bright ideas and bold strategies from the keynote luncheon presentation by the current Oklahoma Teacher of the Year, Donna Gradel.

Participants of this science institute will come away enriched, entertained, inspired, and connected. All participants will receive a $300 stipend for participating in the experience along with lab supplies ($150 value).

Space is limited, and the program fills quickly. Due to limited space, participants will be selected from a pool of applicants. Preference will be given to applicants who have not previously attended this program.

Here’s what some of our participants were saying about the program:

“Thank you for providing a knowledgeable and exciting week of activities.” C.B. – Middle School Science Teacher

“I just want to once again thank you all and Conoco/Phillips for this opportunity. I was getting burned out and frustrated the past two years because of all the emphasis on testing. This week has renewed my spirit and given back my desire to reach as many students as possible! I cannot wait to add all the new information to my classes!” S.G. – Middle School Science Teacher

“I just have to tell you how excited I am about this past week! When I got home, I talked nonstop for almost two hours!” M.C. – Middle School Science Teacher
