UNL’s Nebraska Math and Science Summer Institutes (NMSSI) is excited to announce a special offer for teachers who are taking a graduate course through the NMSSI for the first time! Our Newcomers Program awards a $200 bonus to teachers who are new to the NMSSI**. This fellowship is in addition to the 20% tuition discount for current Nebraska teachers (for courses that are not online asynchronous) and will be added to any NMSSI Fellowships that are awarded for specific courses via that application process. To be considered for the Newcomers program, simply respond “no” to the NMSSI Fellowship application question that asks if you have previously taken any NMSSI courses! Spread the word: The Newcomers offer ends May 31.

Even if this special offer doesn’t apply to you, NMSSI Fellowships are available for all of the NMSSI courses in Summer 2022, in mathematics, mathematics pedagogy, and the sciences, for K-12 teachers. The courses will be offered utilizing several instructional models, including in-person, synchronous online (“web conferencing”), and asynchronous online, and in varying lengths of time, from one week to eight weeks. Check out the full list of courses in the NMSSI Course Catalog. In-person locations this summer are Lincoln, Gretna, Hastings and Kearney.

To enroll in UNL graduate courses, follow the four steps outlined on the NMSSI website, http://scimath.unl.edu/nmssi. Check out our costs page to see how much your tuition will be reduced after the 20% discount and NMSSI fellowships!

As follows are the courses available in mathematics, mathematics pedagogy and science, organized by grade level. Note: Times listed are approximate, as the live, whole-group hours on Zoom will fall within that window of time; we recommend you save the rest of the listed time for working in small groups on homework.**MATH**:**Elementary**:
