The STEMscopes School Success team works with each district or school to assess, identify, and analyze their strengths and weaknesses for each of the eight science and engineering practices identified in the NRC Framework. The team then carefully designs hands-on professional learning sessions that provide educators with opportunities to practice these skills and transfer their learning directly into the classroom.
In addition, best practices trainings can be used to enhance instructional approaches unique to STEM. From understanding 3D learning to integrating technology in the classroom, these practices form the cornerstone of the STEM classroom. The trainings are provided in a variety of formats — face-to-face, self-paced online, recorded webinar, and live webinars — to suit teacher schedules and needs.
