Summer Science Institute

The 19th Annual ConocoPhillips & Phillips 66 Summer Science Institute for Middle School Teachers

June 5-10, 2016

Come and join us for a five-day learning experience, full of fun and excitement at the picturesque OSSM campus in the center of Oklahoma City. Back by popular demand, ConocoPhillips, Phillips 66, and OSSM are sponsoring the Summer Science Institute for the 19th consecutive year. The Institute is aimed at providing middle school science teachers with knowledge and hands-on experience in Geoscience, Life and Physical Sciences. Teachers can enhance their science background while being offered new opportunities to transfer knowledge and skills to classroom instruction. Two field trips will provide unique first hand learning experience in two of the world-class facilities in Oklahoma City. Participants of this science institute will come away enriched, entertained, inspired, and connected. All participants will receive a $300 stipend and lab supplies (approximately $100-200 value).


Here’s what some of our participants were saying about the program:

“Thank you for providing a knowledgeable and exciting week of activities.”

“Thanks to your inspiration.”

“I just have to tell you how excited I am about this past week! When I got home, I talked nonstop for almost two hours!”

“I just want to once again thank you all and Conoco/Phillips for this opportunity. I was getting burned out and frustrated the past two years because of all the emphasis on testing. This week has renewed my spirit and given back my desire to reach as many students as possible! I cannot wait to add all the new information to my classes!!”
