STEM BootCamp is a focused three-day professional development program hosted by the Air Force Academy to improve STEM teaching skills in southern Colorado K-12 educators. Held annually each summer since 2010, the program is organized and delivered by the Challenger Learning Center of Colorado and funded by the National Defense Education Program (now known as DoD STEM). In 2015, 105 educators attended, representing the Front Range of Colorado, Texas, Kansas, and Arizona.
BootCamp provides some of the best project-based learning professional development offered in the U.S. over a period of three days for elementary, middle, and high school educators. This highly sought after, low-cost to teachers, professional development workshop reinvents its content every year.
