STEMcoachTM Professional Development provides a continuum of professional development to help teachers effectively master the use of STEMscopes curriculum and best practices from beginning to end. STEMcoach offers everything from introductory sessions on what is STEMscopes to STEM certification for your campus/district.
STEMscopes is intuitively designed so all teachers can grab-and-go from day one. However, it takes time to fully utilize all the features of STEMscopes and master the 5E+IA model on which it is constructed. Implementation trainings are designed to help schools and districts that are new to STEMscopes get up to speed quickly.
Engaging and informative STEMcoach advanced sessions help teachers continue to grow professionally, responding to their needs and providing clear, actionable plans so they can learn more and dig deeper into the features of STEMscopes, STEM practices, and the 5E+IA instructional model. Follow-up trainings are brief courses available both in person and via webinars to hone specific skills.
