Participants will explore research-based practices and cross-curricular applications along with specific STEM content provided by experts. The format of the institutes will be a combination of:
• Modeling best-practices around STEM curriculum including hands-on, project-based, inquiry-based, and design-based instruction, and pedagogy;
• Plenary sessions, with nationally recognized keynote speakers;
• 21st century skill-based curriculum and pedagogy;
• Leadership strategies;
• 20 hours of interactive curriculum and instruction linked to Idaho/National STEM education learning standards;
• Continuing education credit opportunities will be made available for individuals attending the 2015 i-STEM summer institutes.
2015 i-STEM summer institutes are supported in part by an Idaho State Department of Education Math Science Partnership grant and a variety of i-STEM business and industry partners. All participants will receive free tuition for continuing education credits, tools, resources, curriculum, a technology device, and material kits for use in your classroom or school, along with meals and connections to STEM Content experts. Please note we have fully adopted a “Place Based” model for the 2015 i-STEM summer institutes and participants are expected to attend the institute in or near their respective region. This change allows for greater local teacher participation, as we have now opened 6 institutes across the state.
