What is the STEM Institute for Elementary Teachers?
The STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) Institute for Elementary Teachers – or SIET – is a one to three day interactive professional learning workshop for primary and junior teachers. The program shares innovative teaching strategies for integrating science, technology, engineering, and math into classroom lessons.
At the STEM Institute for Elementary Teachers, educators explore how to make science come alive for students. Teachers discover new ways to have students apply their knowledge. Teachers will also be equipped with information and resources to share with other teachers in their home communities.
