Partnering Scientists and Teachers: Priming the STEM Pipeline

The Program on America and the Global Economy Presents:

Partnering Scientists and Teachers:

Priming the STEM Pipeline

Tuesday, December 13, 2011

9:00 – 10:30 a.m.

5th Floor Conference Room, Woodrow Wilson Center

Something powerful happens when teachers and students work side-by-side with scientists and engineers. They come to understand the practice of science and engineering, while scientists and engineers learn to communicate their work in a way that makes sense to the public. These types of partnerships are being recommended by a series of recent legislative initiatives and STEM organizations. Our panel will discuss first-hand experience with teacher-scientist partnerships and how they can strengthen K-12 STEM education.
