Montana Science Teaching Institute

The Montana Science Teaching Institute (MSTI) is a free professional development workshop series that connects middle and high school science teachers through a collaborative cohort model using BioInteractive's interactive online learning tools integrated into classroom-ready resources.


The MSTI workshop is a flexible, engaging professional development opportunity being offered free to Montana teachers this fall. Over the course of two 120-minute sessions and an online asynchronous classroom, we’ll explore tools that will help guide student inquiry into the science behind a changing climate in Montana and the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem.

Get PD credit for attending! MSTI participants who join the online workshops and complete a series of online assignments can receive 12 hours of PD credit that fulfills attendance in the MFPE Educator Conference in October.

Saving Biodiversity: Ants to Grizzlies

September 27 from 3:30 - 5 pm MST

There's doubt that human impacts are reducing natural habitats. This special workshop delves into species-area relationships, species support in changing habitats, and solutions for animals needing extensive roaming areas. Highlighting HHMI BioInteractive's film, "From Ants to Grizzlies," we delve into related resources, classroom tool ideas, and insights from an EPI Yellowstone specialist—sharing studies, conservation successes, and ways to connect students to science and nature.

We're thrilled that you are applying for the Montana Science Teaching Institute (MSTI)!

The MSTI is a science teaching professional development program that will be delivered online via 90-minute modules in workshop format scheduled weekly over four consecutive weeks.  Each module will feature innovative teaching resources and techniques that will support your classroom teaching.  

This is a workshop series - not a webinar - and is intended to be collaborative and interactive. Participants will actively collaborate with colleagues from across the state while they explore and practice with the introduced tools and concepts.

To promote collaboration, it is expected that participants attend and engage with all four modules during the program.  However, we understand that this may not always be possible, so modules will be recorded and made available for those who can't attend or wish to review them.
