STEM Educators Academy
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.
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.
- 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
