Course Description:

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) education is believed by many to be the conduit between the learning of the past and learning of the future. How will our students succeed in the future workforce when it is dominated by highly skilled positions which will focus on math, science, engineering, and technology?

 The Department of Commerce estimates that STEM occupations will grow 1.7 times faster than non-STEM occupations over the period from 2008 - 2018. In order to meet these workforce needs, the United States will need approximately 1 million more STEM professionals than are projected to graduate over the next decade. We need to prepare our students, but first, we must prepare ourselves. As educators, we are the linchpin in the growing movement to update our teaching practices to reflect the 21st century we live in. We need to discover so that we can prepare the next generation of success stories.

 The goal of this course is to empower educators with everything they need to gain a foundational understanding of STEM principles and pedagogy. The course will also provide information, guidance, and direction on how to introduce students to the 21st-century skills that are inherent in STEM teaching and learning. Participants will be provided with skills to implement STEM learning, including; techniques to foster innovation, engineering design, data-driven design, critical-thinking, and problem-solving. This training also enables teachers to incorporate the STEM elements into any science lesson in their classroom with minor adjustments.
