Course Description:

This course is designed to provide the learner with tools and strategies to design integrated, interdisciplinary STEM lessons and units that are both relevant and exciting to your students. STEM in itself is not a curriculum, but rather a way of organizing and delivering instruction by weaving the STEM disciplines together in thoughtful and intentional ways. Rather than teaching the new disciplines in isolation, the engineering and technological practices should be blended into existing lessons in ways that engage the students and help them master 21st century skills.
