Over 70 teachers from 12 countries are participating this year. Over 450 teachers applied to attend the program. The boot camp is part of Honeywell’s commitment to support science and math education.

As a science educator, I’m always looking for development opportunities to advance my knowledge around key science topics. I can’t wait to bring these lessons back to my students.” — Kristy Mar, Teacher, Torrance, California
