The Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway initiative is built on the belief that school systems, individual schools, departments, or individual teachers can improve their STEM education practices through a positive, collaborative approach.
In July 2015, the DC STEM Network hosted the Carnegie Science Center as part of the training on the Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway. Check out the video today!
Designed to help the widest possible range of school districts and schools adopt best practices in STEM education, the Pathway includes:
- A tool and process for assessing current STEM programming and creating a practical plan for improvement
- A guide to specific steps a school or district can take to improve STEM education
- Supports for teacher professional development and district to district mentoring
- Recognition for schools that are embracing and moving toward effective STEM education
