This 8-hour course provides everything an educator needs to ignite student interest in STEM topics and careers.
Research shows that learning about STEM careers and the diverse people working in these fields inspires students
and makes the study of science, technology, engineering, and math more meaningful to them. In this course,
educators learn how to engage students in STEM, how to incorporate diverse role models into their instruction, and
how to overcome negative STEM stereotypes.
This 8-hour course trains teachers in science content (life, Earth, and physical sciences) through
inquiry and shows them how to translate their learning to their teaching practice. The course
draws deeply on the latest research on how young people learn science and how teachers can
support their students’ attainment of STEM literacy. This course is aligned to NGSS and CCSS.
