|The AdvancED Missouri Join the Journey: Spotlighting STEM Conference dives into the world of STEM education. How can a school stay true to its institutional mission while embracing the multiple ways STEM further sets students up for success in today’s world? With multiple STEM Schools being built anew, what are the practical steps existing schools can take now? How does an AdvancED STEM Certification serve and support all content areas? These questions and more will all be addressed to help schools learn how to implement STEM best practices in ways that engage all stakeholders.
This year’s theme, Spotlighting STEM, places an emphasis on how a strong STEM focus can accelerate your institution’s student impact. Dig into design-thinking and makerspaces; identify the root of STEM learning to design a high-quality curriculum; learn how to facilitate creativity in STEM classrooms; and bridge lessons to opportunities beyond the classroom to make adult-world connections. The conference also will offer an opportunity to take your commitment even further by learning about the AdvancED STEM Certification process.
