The first week of SCOE’s STEM++ Summer Institute for kindergarten through sixth grade teachers was a great success! STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. The Institute was designed to train teachers on how to engage students in their education through research, real world problem solving, and authentic contemporary scenarios. Participants learned about the common core state standards, the 21st century classroom, connecting via social networks, cell phones in the classroom, project-based learning, and more. The Institure was co-sponsored by the Educational Partnership Foundation of Solano, UC Davis Extension, Travis Air Force Base, School Improvement Network, Pearson, and the Energy Coalition. The STEM++ Summer Institute continues next week for middle and high school teachers!
