Apply to Attend #DENSI2014


The Discovery Educator Network Summer Institute (DENSI) is a unique weeklong residential style professional development opportunity that brings together STAR Discovery Educators from across disciplines and geography with a common mission to energize their own teaching
through the power of collaboration, technology, and fun. This year, we’ll be gathering on the banks of the Cumberland River in the Music City, Nashville, TN at Vanderbilt University July 13-18.

DENSI (pronounced DEN-es-eye) is free to attend but does have a competitive application process. Find out more about it at Be sure to read the FAQ for important information before you apply.

We hope you will apply to attend.  Applications are due March 24, 2014 by 8am ET.

    This is so exciting. Now to get busy and get my video made and application completed. Thanks Porter and the rest of the DEN team that does all of the work on the back end to make DENSI “the event” of the summer. Hoping by the end of March I’ll be shouting, “Nashville, here I come!”
