OVERVIEW: Successful STEM Education is a site that provides resources, information, and events about effective tools and practices for K-12 STEM education. The site also contains links to 2 important STEM education reports:
Successful K-12 STEM Education
Monitoring Progress Toward Successful K-12 STEM Education
My favorite part of the site is the STEM Smart Briefs– these 10 briefs provide an overview on research that relates to common challenges and recommendations in K-12. Topics of the briefs include:
- Connecting Informal and Formal STEM Education
- CTE Pathways to STEM Occupations
- Engineering: Emphasizing the “E” in STEM Education
- Preparing and Supporting STEM Educators
TARGET AUDIENCE: Administrators, STEM teachers and teacher leaders, PD providers, informal science providers, curriculum directors, and others in education
PURPOSE: Provides key STEM Education resources in one location.
I think it’s interesting that STEM education can help so much. It makes sense that teachers would be able to use it! You would want to make sure that they understand how to support the educators.
