STEM Teaching Certificate
This certificate provides K-14 educators with an opportunity to expand their skills and methods for engaging students in rich, powerful STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) learning experiences. The certificate focuses on an interdisciplinary approach to teaching where STEM-related concepts are coupled with real-world situations. Through standards-based courses, teachers will learn how to inspire students to think critically and apply mathematics, science, and engineering to solve everyday problems. They integrate concepts that are usually taught as separate subjects and emphasize the application of knowledge.
