The Harris Corporation and The Rochester Area Colleges' Center for Excellence in Math and Science (RAC-CEMS) are teaming up to offer nine no-cost hands-on math, science and technology institutes for teachers. These intensive learning opportunities are offered to K-12 teachers of math, science, and related technologies in Allegany, Cayuga, Genesee, Livingston, Monroe, Ontario, Orleans, Seneca, Wayne, Wyoming and Yates counties. Each Institute is led by regional college or institution faculty in a summer classroom, lab and/or field experience, followed by ongoing follow-up and support activities that continue throughout the 2010-2011 academic year and is offered at no cost to the participants.
