How to Integrate STEM into Your Classroom

  • STEM
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Technology

Overview

STEM is often taught in silos – with science being taught in science class, math being taught in math class, and so on. However, teaching STEM in an integrated form creates more opportunities for students to experience authentic, real-world learning experiences. Doing so also promotes skill-building and problem-solving while providing multiple high-engagement opportunities. Using examples and highlighting strategies that all educators can use, TGR Foundation education experts discuss why an interdisciplinary approach to teaching and learning is critical for student success in postsecondary education and the workforce, while providing step-by-step solutions to integrate your classroom right away.
