EdVenture, with support from the South Carolina Department of Education, is proud to announce that 150 public school teachers participated in the seventh year of Hands-On, Minds-On! (HMO) Summer Institute for Teachers. The Institute was FREE for public elementary teachers dedicated to sharing EdVenture’s expertise in making science and math fun and accessible in the classroom.

 Geared for 4K through 5th grade teachers, HMO is a week-long experience that provides tools for understanding the concepts of curriculum integration with an emphasis on math and science. The sessions took place June 11-14, June 18-21 and June 25-28. Each four-day session emphasized the integration of science and core subjects into regular curriculum through training sessions built around the total immersion concept of inquiry-based instruction.

Teachers received hands-on experiences designed around state curriculum standards, take-away science materials, resource manuals, free hotel accommodations, honorary membership in EdVenture’s Teacher Ambassador Program, innovative techniques and leadership skills.
