Nationally Recognized Teacher Training in STEM Education
Are you a PK-12 educator seeking sustained professional development in high-quality STEM Education? Our nationally-recognized professional development model has been developed to support the evolution of your classroom offering with a focus on high-quality problem-based learning experiences rooted in career connections, 21st-century skills, and collaboration. Our Educator Fellows have unique transformational experiences including building long-term relationships with local STEM Industry professionals and university professors through our collaborative 15-session model. As a result, our educators become members of a community of teacher-learners who share a common ambition to provide their students with rigorous and relevant classroom experiences that engage students’ minds and ignite their imaginations. Past participants report increased student engagement; student-led experiences; student-explored career connections; authentic learning experiences; ability to create and implement differentiated instruction and assessments; as well as increased knowledge pertaining to STEM Education. If this sounds like an experience you are looking for, consider applying for the 2021-2022 STEM Fellows season professional learning community! Feel free to share this 2022 STEM Fellows Teacher Rectruitment Flyer.
Please note: Applications are due September 16, 2022.
