New Mexico Teacher STEM-READY Academy
Middle School Teachers:  June 2-13, 2019
High School Teachers:  June 16-27. 2019
This professional development opportunity will focus on evidence-based practices for engaging students with varied learning styles, integrating project-based learning with core curriculum, alignment with NM Science Ready Standards, and effective strategies for leading STEM co-curricular and extra-curricular competitions as end-of-course exam outcomes. This training will help teachers engage special populations in STEM with real-world applications – to meet basic career readiness requirements that will connect students to internships with local business and industry partners and eventual professional employment. The intent is to provide teachers the tools to create, capture, and develop student interest in STEM, to get students thinking how the path of skills training, certificate courses, two and four year degrees can lead to career opportunities and continuing education for career advancement. Each Academy session is limited to 20 teachers. Instruction will be delivered by faculty from NMSU’s Colleges of Engineering and Education.
