Empowered STEM Education is a project of Earth Force

Changing educator practice requires support within buildings for educators as they test new strategies and alter their approach. Based on our work with schools across the country we offer a simple approach to building the capacity of your school to support Empowered STEM.

We launch with a full day planning workshop that:

  • Engaging a cross-section of the school audience (administrators, department heads, facilities staff, educators, and students)
  • Demonstrating what high quality Empowered STEM is, how it will impact classroom activities, and how staff outside of the classroom can support educators and students.
  • Identifying “anchor points” where Empowered STEM fills curricular needs, complements existing school-wide or department initiatives, and/or fills gaps in school-wide efforts.
  • Begin planning the logistics of implementing Empowered STEM
  • Support in integrating Empowered STEM with other school-wide initiatives and goals.
  • Support in scanning local community to understand issues affecting residents and business and identifying ways to bring them into the classroom.
