At The Tech Museum of Innovation in San Jose, CA, we are working deeply on this issue through our Tech Academies of Innovation program. Through this program, we have selected teams of teachers working with an after-school program partner to engage in a three-year partnership supporting both in-school and out-of-school educators to integrate engineering and computer science into their teaching and to develop model school-wide STEM programs. Participants also become Engineering Education Leaders (EELs) and Software Engineering Education Leaders (SEELs) who train other teachers and out-of-school time educators at the school and after-school organization.
ExpandED and NYSCI also run a similar program (Design to Learn) in NYC. We both could probably speak to obstacles and opportunities we’ve faced through implementation of these programs. Happy to set up a call or answer specific questions you might have.
