Paid summer teacher institute 

at the Intrepid Museum

Apply for a two week stipend-supported Summer Institute integrating technology and history!

July 20-July 31, 2020 NEH Summer Institute for Teachers

     Apply to join history, science and technology teachers from across the United States for a National Endowment for the Humanities Summer Institute for Teachers: The Cold War Through the Collections of the Intrepid Museum! The Summer Institute will immerse participating teachers in scholarly research as well as the artifacts and oral histories in the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum’s collection that embody the Cold War era. Integrating content exploring the historical context of technological innovation, the Institute will serve a national group of 25 teachers in order to deepen their understanding and increase confidence in their ability to explore the subject thoroughly, critically and engagingly with their students. 

     These projects are designed principally for full-time or part-time teachers and librarians in public, charter, independent, and religiously affiliated schools, as well as home schooling parents. Museum educators and other K-12 school system personnel—such as administrators, substitute teachers, and curriculum developers—are also eligible to participate. Applicants must be United States citizens, residents of U.S. jurisdictions, or foreign nationals who have been residing in the United States or its territories for at least the three years immediately preceding the application deadline.

     Each participant receives a stipend of $2,100 for the two week institute.

The story behind our association

The Hawaii Education Association (HEA) 

HEA has an illustrious beginning. It was founded in 1921 to represent the educational community to the Territorial Legislature. Statehood in 1959, brought the importance of HEA to the forefront, becoming the “voice” of educators” by representing the welfare of all educators at the Legislature. In 1970-71, HEA was instrumental in establishing three educational collective bargaining units that are still in existence. This, however, altered the direct influence and impact HEA would have on Hawaii’s educational community.

Demographics and needs of the educational community have changed; however, HEA continues to support its vision of affirming the professionalism of Hawaii’s educators. In 1994, HEA acquired 501(c)(3) nonprofit status to continue their support for excellence in education. Throughout HEA’s history, loyal and committed members have supported the organization through generous annual donations to support Teaching As A Career (TAAC), scholarships for pre-service education and active teachers, and Excellence in Teaching and Learning (ExTL) initiatives.
