Resources for School Leaders
Since our projects in the STEM area have started, the challenges facing the United States have grown even larger. In our time of economic challenge, it is more important than ever that we transform educational practice to encourage more students to develop skills in the domains of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. This has been highlighted in the creation of the Next Generation Science Standards which have received active interest from over forty states..
Our schools are striving to address the needs of our students so they can acquire the skills and habits of mind needed to thrive in this century.
