Strategic STEM: Creating Programs that Thrive
Developed in 2011, Strategic STEM is a two-year program for education leaders who are looking to create a high-quality and sustainable STEM program for their school, district, or education system.
The program includes professional development (PD) days, school visits, panel discussions, mentorship opportunities, and a culminating presentation.
Imagine what integrated STEM education could look like at your school/district. Your team will engage in visioning sessions while exploring what successful STEM schools do—based upon national programs, research, and standards—to create a STEM program that matches your community’s unique values.
Guided by experienced WPI staff and mentor teams, you’ll review several successful STEM integration models, ultimately customizing the one that best fits your needs. You and your teams will research STEM frameworks, develop visions, pillars, and outcomes for your students and teachers, explore funding opportunities and implementation plans, and more—all with the final result of a complete strategic plan for STEM integration.
Once you’ve created your plan, you and your team will be supported through the implementation of your top-priority items, including two STEM PD days for your teachers.
Since its inception, Strategic STEM has engaged education leaders representing over 20 schools and districts:
- Ashburnham-Westminster Regional School District
- Belchertown Public Schools
- Berlin-Boylston Regional School District
- Cambridge Public Schools
- Concord Public Schools
- Douglas Public Schools
