Districts and science teachers are inundated with challenges to focus on and improve STEM education. The competing demands of district stakeholders, test scores and parents can leave teachers feeling frustrated and overwhelmed. The Saint Louis Science Center is proud to provide the Carnegie STEM Excellence Pathway® to help schools and districts evaluate and improve STEM education.
This Pathway was created by the Carnegie Science Center in Pittsburgh to serve as a roadmap for schools and districts to self-diagnose their current STEM offerings on a matrix which includes community involvement, student buy-in and educator preparedness. Teams would then use this diagnosis to create a plan of action in order to affect manageable change in their schools and districts. The Pathway fosters long-term, strategic planning with a focus on continuous, iterative growth.
