Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM)
about the program
The Science, Technology, Engineering, & Mathematics (STEM) program, spanning grades preK–16, offers a diverse portfolio of projects that enhance teaching and learning across all STEM subjects, including the less commonly addressed fields of technology and engineering education.
Through cutting-edge research, evaluation, curriculum development, and professional development, STEM increases understanding on issues such as technology literacy, the use of simulations to enhance student learning and assessment, and science and mathematics learning. The SimScientists team won the 2012 award for research paper of the year from the prestigious National Association of Research in Science Teaching.
STEM's Making Sense of SCIENCE project continues to publish professional development courses for middle school science teachers. These courses prepare teachers for the new Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
