Mystic Seaport for Educators Summer 2017 Fellowships Available
February 2, 2017
Mystic Seaport is currently looking for creative, enthusiastic, and dedicated teachers to participate in the Mystic Seaport for Educators (MSE) website research and content creation program.
MSE is a collaborative website, created by educators and featuring hundreds of primary sources from the Museum's world-class collection. Maritime-focused artifacts, documents, maps, lectures, scholar interviews, and lesson plans come to life on the website and serve as easy to access tools for any teacher's classroom.
The MSE Summer Fellowship program focuses on the research and development of features for the website. Educators selected for the program spend time in training, and working with Museum staff to explore the collections and write content for the website. Completed projects are then transformed into website features by Museum staff, the following school year.
