Illinois Mathematics and Science Academy

To ignite and nurture creative, ethical, scientific minds that advance the human condition.

The Golden Apple Summer Institute

The Golden Apple Summer Institute is a five-week residential experience offered at IMSA for preservice teachers who have been accepted as Golden Apple Scholars of Illinois. The IMSA/Golden Apple Summer Institute helps Scholars learn and practice an inquiry-based, problem-centerd instructional approach that engages students in hands-on, minds-on mathematics and science activities. A three-year sequence of Summer Institutes enables Scholars to achieve increasing skill levels in curriculum planning and delivery as they teach middle and high school students.
