STEM Fellows

STEM Fellows Program is an exciting opportunity for teachers, industry experts, and higher education faculty to work together to enhance K-12 curriculum to bring real world and contextualized learning into classrooms. Each STEM Fellows team consists of teachers, industry experts, and higher education faculty who meet approximately twice a month throughout the school year.  The intensive professional development experience can result in changedFellows at 2015 STEM Celebration teacher practices and the resulting curriculum has the potential to impact student learning in the Washington Alliance for Better Schools’ eleven partner school districts in the Puget Sound region and beyond. The teachers learn about real world STEM applications in the workforce and deepen their understanding of STEM practices and concepts, and the higher education and industry fellows learn about K-12 education and have an opportunity to invest in the K-12 education pipeline.

STEM Fellows Teams will work in one of the following areas:

  • Pre-Calculus, Physics & Engineering
  • Biomed, Biotech and/or Bioengineering
  • Algebra 2 & Chemistry
  • Middle School Math & Science
  • 4th-8th Grade Math, Science & Engineering
  • 4th-8th Grade Computer Science, Math & Science
  • We are also open to new ideas around integrated science, math and career and technical education teams
