STARS Mentor Teacher Workshops
The Mentor Teacher Workshops were designed by the STARS team to achieve the following goals (1) to present a broad spectrum of teachers with ready-to-use lesson modules for classroom implementation, (2) to increase and reinforce the science knowledge of the teachers in the county, and (3) to impact thousands of students and hundreds of teachers across the county. The STARS program has been hosting these monthly workshop on USF campus over the last three years. You are welcome to download and use these lessons in your classrooms. You can sign up for upcoming workshops via the email system of Hillsborough County.
