Teacher-in-Residence Program comes to MASSTC

The Cape Cod Regional STEM Network’s Teacher-in-Residence Program pairs Pre-K–12 teachers with STEM-rich organizations across the region to explore STEM beyond the classroom. Barnstable County’s Massachusetts Alternative Septic System Test Center (MASSTC) is participating for the first time this year, hosting teachers Siobhan Curran from Sturgis Charter Public School and Adam Cutler from Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School.

Each teacher’s two week-long residency is built around the challenge of creating a project in collaboration with staff at the host institution. The goal is to develop approaches and STEM curricular materials that engage young people in STEM in the real world.
