Grand Canyon University's STEM Ready Series

Overview

Innovation is driving the U.S. workforce and economy. In order to prepare students for the future, integration of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) instructional practices within the educational experience is paramount. Moreover, just as each student is unique, each school should aim to customize a path and strategy that meets their unique needs to best serve their community. Is your school STEM Ready?

The STEM Ready workshop series is designed to help schools evaluate their current STEM readiness, analyze their needs and create a strategic plan to implement STEM into their teaching and learning practices. Each workshop will be an interactive, hands-on learning experience that will provide a school team the time and tools necessary to collaborate and create sustainable STEM practices to embed in their school culture. Participants will receive one day of customized STEM Ready coaching at their site and at the conclusion of the series, schools that successfully complete the program will be eligible to apply for the GCU STEM Ready Grant to help kick-start an identified project or program.

Requirements:

  • School team of up to three people (administrators and teachers) to attend workshops and serve as leaders at their school site
  • Attendance at the four workshops throughout the year
  • Cost: $500 for team of three; $400 for GCU participant school teams (if you are unsure whether your school is a GCU participant, please contact amanda.hughens@gcu.edu)
  • Download, sign and email the general release/waiver to Amanda Hughens

Teams will receive:

  • Four full-day, interactive, hands-on workshops
  • 25+ Professional Development hours
  • One day of “STEM Ready” coaching at your school, customized for individual school needs
  • Digital portfolio created by teams throughout the series that will serve as the basis for a strategic STEM Implementation plan
