A Teacher Institute for Professional Practice in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math. Imagine a dramatically new approach to teaching and learning characterized by challenging, problem-based learning experiences that tear down compartmentalized disciplines and curriculums, and engage students in scientific inquiry and the engineering design process. Imagine a learning environment rich in opportunities for discovery that not only build scientific and engineering expertise but also foster teamwork, communication skills, critical thinking and creativity. Now imagine that these environments and experiences are available to every student, in every school, in every community.
To support this learning revolution, the Dayton Regional STEM Center (DRSC) coordinates an established network of regional institutions and professionals that provides rich opportunities for STEM education by training and supporting educators, designing curriculum aligned to the workforce needs, training school leaders at the district and building level, and supporting schools and program models committed to STEM teaching and learning.
