The 2022-2023 NEWT Program gives teachers a unique opportunity to gain hands-on experience, learn engineering skills, and conduct research side by side with Navy engineers and scientists.

This 8-week summer program will give teachers a taste of life as a professional engineer and give them crucial insights that they will be able to bring back to their classrooms.

Teachers will work with Navy mentors to develop demonstrations and curriculum materials and will receive continued mentorship throughout 2022-2023 the academic year including a classroom visit to give students a chance to interact directly with STEM professionals.

The program is a collaboration between Naval Surface Warfare Center Philadelphia Division and the Philadelphia Robotics Coalition. Teachers receive a $10,000 stipend for completing the 15-month program.
