CHICO, Calif. - Bilingual professors at Chico State showed off their final projects this week from their summer teacher institute.

The institute helps to increase Spanish vocabulary in math and sciences for two-way immersion schools and provides tuition support for bilingual student-teachers.

This is the second year of the five-year project.  It was created by Chico State and funded in 2017 through a more than $2 million dollar grant from the Department of Education.
