Each summer the ARRL offers multiple sessions of the Teachers Institute (TI) on Wireless Technology, a 4 day expenses paid professional development seminar.  TI has provided teachers from elementary school to the university level with tools and strategies to introduce basic electronics, the science of radio, space technology, satellite communications, weather science, as well as micro-controllers and basic robotics in their classrooms. The goal of the TI program is to equip each teacher with necessary foundational knowledge, hands-on learning, and generate the inspiration for teachers to continue to explore wireless technology and adapt relevant content into their classroom instruction. The cost is virtually free for the participants and graduate credits are available through Fresno Pacific University. Participants are expected to be able to complete all requirements during the class time. To qualify, applicants must be an active teacher at an elementary, middle, high school or at a community college or university, or in a leadership or enrichment instruction roll in an after-school program.  An Amateur Radio license is NOT required. For more information or brochure, contact them at etp@arrl.org
