PROBLEM

Teachers do not engage in innovative or collaborative planning, professional development, or reflection related to 21st century skills and STEAM education so students are not building 21st century skills and mindsets or real-world projects in STEAM education.

HOW MIGHT WE…

Increase student and teacher enthusiasm for STEM education and evidence of STEAM-themed culture of innovation and collaboration school-wide.

SOLUTION

Develop corporate partnerships with STEAM industry companies (Lumity and Accenture) to design and implement real-world project-enhanced learning opportunities for students and a mobile Maker Space.
