BEI Institute at EWU

The Bilingual Educators Initiative (BEI) is a high school teacher academy that recruits multilingual, underserved, and multicultural students to explore educational opportunities through the lens of the teaching profession. The program aims to diversify the educator workforce, close the opportunity gap, and diminish the teacher shortage by working with high school students (Recruiting Washington Teachers 2019-20 Annual Report, 2020). The Noyce Project and chemistry students helped with activities during a weeklong BEI Institute at EWU. High school students learned about social justice issues with science and made soap. As well as tie-dyed shirts and had liquid nitrogen ice cream.
