When teachers are enthusiastic about STEM, so are their students.

Professional Development

Swenson College will provide unique professional development for K-12 teachers to effectively address the needs of STEM integrated curriculum. We plan to host workshops for educators at the elementary, middle and high school levels to address a variety of comfort levels for teaching science and engineering in the classroom. Our faculty will engage educators in methods that are fun to teach and fun to learn. Our focus will be on integrating hands-on and inquiry-based learning methods into current lesson plans.

Educators will participate in grade-specific lessons to make sense of science phenomena and reflect on instructional strategies. Our goal is to help others better engage their students in STEM lessons that are consistent with Minnesota science and math standards.
