STEM & Leadership

The integration of mathematics and science content and habits of mind provides powerful tools in the classroom.
Participants in this Institute learned to explore ways to conceptualize STEM/STEAM integration; participate in inquiry-based investigations in topics such as biodiversity; design challenging activities and investigations; and examine activities and investigations through the lenses of frameworks for leadership. Additionally, participants utilized a variety of tools for supporting STEM leadership; develop an action plan for a classroom or school-based initiative; and will review recent literature and policy related to STEM education, including the NC DPI STEM rubrics.
