Teachers who are selected to be part of the New York State Master Teacher Program have access to special professional development opportunities through ESF. This professional network of more than 1,400 public school K-12 STEM teachers throughout the state share a passion for inspiring the next generation of STEM leaders.  

Master Teachers gain access to exceptional environmental science professional development workshops, such as learning about creating their own solar cells, the history and chemistry of meromictic lakes, the importance of natural history collections, and the science of soil.  

ESF also partners with Master Teachers to host the annual CNY Youth Climate Summit.
