Michigan's New Science Technology Engineering Mathematics (STEM) Teacher Network
The STEM Teacher Network is a community-driven professional learning community that connects STEM instructors across Michigan. Members can interact through the online community or join in on monthly live, online meetings. Each meeting will focus on a specific topic (such as free resources, class routines, or fundraising) and will feature a panel of fellow STEM teachers who are knowledgeable about that particular topic.
The first online meeting was held in October. Live sessions will continue on the second Tuesday of each month.
Sign up to receive the STEM Teacher Network updates including an invitation to join the online community.
