The Flagstaff STEM Ecosystem is looking to help our K-12 teachers interested in obtaining STEM certification. We are seeking insights into organizations that offer certifications nationally or regionally. We are also interested in experiences Ecosystems have with regional or state certifications and processes.3 years, 5 months ago philip.hampton327Participant
California State University San Bernardino offers a MA in STEM education as a focus under the MA in Education: http://bulletin.csusb.edu/colleges-schools-departments/education/teacher-education-foundations/stem-education-mae/3 years, 5 months ago Michelle FreemanKeymaster
Maryville University offers an intensive, 9-credit hour STEM Education Certificate each June on campus in St Louis. The mornings run 8:30-12:45 with 3 days on each topic: 1-credit STEM Education overview, a choice of 4 out of 8 1-credit electives (e.g., makerspace, robotics—each for three sequential mornings) to tailor the program to their interests and needs, then have a 1-credit capstone and leave with an action plan for their classroom or school. In the afternoons from 1:30-4:30, educators take a 3-credit hour Creativity, Problem Solving, and Critical Thinking course that serves to tie the program together and provides strategies useful across all STEM Education.
It is possible to do only a portion of the program (we get some teachers that just want to learn about a single elective or others whose districts will only pay for 6 credits per summer, for examples).
Also, we are working on an online masters with a summer residency that would compact the length of the summer stay. However, to ensure that it’s at the highest quality, that will probably not be ready to launch until Summer 2019.
Please let us know what questions you have.

The University of Florida offers a STEM certificate. We provided this opportunity to several in our region through an MSP grant. I am copying Nancy Watson, a recipient of the certificate from UF, on this email. She will be able to reply and give details about the program and her experiences.
