2020 ConocoPhillips & Phillips 66 Summer Science Institute
for Middle School Teachers

Back by popular demand, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, and OSSM are sponsoring the 2020 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.

Registration and application information will be available in early March.

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
