STEM/STEAM

  • Building a 21st Century Learning Framework for STEM and CTAE

    STEM/STEAM

    STEM is more than Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. STEM asks students to consider deep, real-world questions and collaborate with others to arrive at meaningful conclusions. Learning through interdisciplinary units of study challenges students and helps them develop the relevant skills for evolving and expanding careers. Join GPB as we explore Discovery Education’s collection of content, instructional strategies, and digital resources that support STEM education and the P21 framework. Participants will come away with an expanded digital toolbox for better illustrating the knowledge their students need to thrive in the workplace and as citizens.
