Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council Awards Center over $40K
Department(s):STEM Education Center
The STEM Education Center was recently awarded $41,600 by the Massachusetts STEM Advisory Council to expand its I am STEM Lesson Library and conduct educator workshops for STEM Week 2022. The library, created by the Center with a 2020 award from the STEM Council, includes lessons for grades PreK-6. Each lesson focuses on solving problems in a storybook. All lessons are aligned with grade-level standards, can be done in the classroom or remotely, and use everyday and recyclable materials. The library is free, accessible to all educators, and was featured as a high-quality resource by the National Science Teaching Association.
In preparation for Massachusetts STEM Week 2022, the STEM Education Center runs free, 90-minute training sessions for PreK-6 educators. Family members of young children are welcome to attend as well! Participants explore the library, the problem solving process, and try a lesson with colleagues. STEM Week events in central MA will be posted on this Central MA STEM Network Ecosystem webpage.
