By 2021, we will...

Develop a blueprint for TK-5 teachers to use ELA and math integration as a tool to increase science instructional minutes in the elementary classroom.

Provide 750 TK-5 teachers with professional development opportunities during the school day. Trainings will focus on how to engage students in active STEM learning experiences and implementation of the Next Generation Science Standards.

Develop a series of administrator trainings to help school leaders appreciate and prioritize science instruction and science professional development in the TK-5 grades.

Is there anything else you intend to do to maximize your impact via the network?

Collaborate with organizations and schools who are currently researching and implementing the integration of English language arts, math, and science to create meaningful student learning experiences. Their findings will inform our creation of resources that are knowledge-driven and applicable for teachers.

Collaborate with and learn from 100Kin10 stakeholders who are familiar with successful STEM school models and use this knowledge to improve our current teacher professional development programs.

Reach out to other organizations that have had success in changing a district's culture to one that prioritizes STEM in order to learn best practices and techniques for supporting administrators in effecting change within their schools.
