STEMwork Professional Learning Institute

Transform Your Practice

Working in small local teams with a facilitator trained by the Kenan Fellows Program for Teacher Leadership, STEMwork Scholars learn how to use Project-Based Learning (PBL) to engage students in exploring real-world STEM careers in their local community, and in the process, build essential skills such as problem solving, collaboration, and communication.
