STEM Educators Academy

Date Added: 

February 28, 2014

Classroom teachers (charged with meeting science and math standards) and after-school educators (charged with providing additional enrichment) can join together to spark interest and cultivate curiosity in STEM subjects. 

How?
Classroom teachers and after-school educators spend a week together in the summer at the New York Hall of Science or the Institute of Play, learning maker/design projects that they can implement in the classroom to bring STEM subjects alive.

They then meet together back at their schools to plan and team-teach projects that support the curriculum.

The Results

  • Classroom teachers enliven learning with hands-on projects
  • After-school educators gain skills and confidence in teaching STEM
  • Students spend 100 more hours a year exploring STEM subjects
