The Philadelphia Regional Institute for STEM Educators (PRISE) cordially invites you to join us and other STEM educator enthusiasts to explore the STEM educator pathway, and why YOU might want to become one!

The Second Annual PRISE STEM Educator Career Exploration Fair will connect future STEM Educators, including high school and college students, college graduates, and career changers, to STEM educators and STEM education stakeholders. Attendees will learn about the pathways to a STEM educator career and why becoming a STEM educator (both in-school or out-of-school) is such a rewarding career!

A NEW aspect of the fair will be awarding PRISE Recognition Awards to high school and college students who have exhibited passion and commitment to teaching through their work in-school or out-of-school programs. We invite you to nominate a worthy student, find out more info at prisephilly.org.

The event will include:

  • A keynote speaker will address the connections between STEM teaching and social justice.
  • Recognition ceremony for high school and college students who have done exemplary teaching.
  • Workshop sessions for high school students, college and graduate students, and career changers to hear key details and real world examples of how to become a STEM teacher and what it is REALLY like to teach STEM in an urban school.

An exhibitor hall to learn about:

  • Opportunities to engage in STEM learning, to teach in out-of-school time and summer programs.
  • A variety of teacher education programs in the Philadelphia area.
  • Poster session in which high school and college students who have been recognized for their exemplary teaching share about their experiences teaching.
