Teachers Get Intensive STEM training at FGCU
(Story by Andrew Sterwald)
By training educators how to teach STEM subjects better, FGCU and Project Lead the Way help ensure that more students develop skills in science, technology, engineering and math — and increase the likelihood those students will pursue degrees and careers in these fast-growing fields.
Florida Gulf Coast University was selected as a Project Lead the Way (PLTW) affiliate in 2014, and for the second time served as a host site this summer for intensive core training for dozens of teachers from Florida and around the country. About 50 middle and high school teachers participated in each week of the nearly three-week program, delving into subjects such as digital electronics, program coding, engineering principles and design, automation and robotics and forensic science.
One of the main goals is to empower teachers to engage students better with hands-on learning experiences that teach critical thinking and problem-solving and inspire more interest in STEM.
