White paper on St. Catherine Model for STEM Elementary education now available
How can our nation best equip elementary school teachers to set our youngest students of a path to STEM proficiency? The National Center for STEM Elementary Education (NCSEE) at St. Catherine University has produced a white paper on the St. Kate’s Model of STEM education and how it is helping elementary school teachers to teach in the STEM disciplines.
“Answering the STEM Imperative in Elementary Education” outlines the NCSEE’s model of teaching science, technology, engineering and mathematics to both pre-service and in-service teachers.
St. Catherine University faculty and staff across six academic departments — education, chemistry, biology, mathematics/physics, Montessori and psychology — have collaborated to create a co-teaching model of STEM curricula recognized for its innovation by the Minnesota Board of Teaching.
