Program Development

Formal K-12 spaces

Some districts are fortunate enought to have STEM Coordinators or STEM Directors, but the majority do not have such luxury. We want to help districts who need additional support to develop any aspect of their STEM program.

 

The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) provide an excellent venue for the integration of science and engineering practices, crosscutting concepts across content areas and science disciplines, and core ideas all students need to master by the end of high school. For more information, please visit NGSS. If your state has adopted NGSS, or your local district is interested in adopting them, we can help facilitate workshops for teachers and district leaders. Please visit our Professional Development page.

Informal Learning Spaces

Whether it is in-school time, or out of school time, informal education partners are essential in advancing STEM education. The flexibility of out of school time provides a great opportunity for the creation of integrated STEM programs. We can help your organization develop programs or an educational agenday to advance STEM skills necessary for students to thrive in this innovation economy. 

 

Educator Workshops

Equity and Inclusion Workshops

Educators at all levels are the leaders for transformational change. Understanding equity issues in STEM Classrooms is essential to create inclusive learning spaces for our students. We offer workshops for individuals, departments, colleges, primary, secondary schools and workplace environments. Workshops focus on a wide range of equity and diversity issues and we take local context into consideration when planning.

 

Curriculum Workshops

Teachers are the leaders for transformational change. We provide services to help your teams make sense of multiple standards by integrating using crosscutting concepts for depth in exporation and mastery of essential ideas.  Most STEM curriculum development focuses on problem based learning or challenge based learning.
