Students or Families:

Visit the “Find an Opportunity” feature of our collaborative partner The Connectory, a national database of events, programs, and activities – offering search tools to find opportunities in your community.

Also, we will look to feature STEM Career explorations (e.g. Health & Sciences Education – http://libguides.und.edu/health-science-education/careers).

STEM Professionals:

Are you or your company looking ways to help ND STEM education through volunteerism? Through our collaboration with The Connectory, we are now connected to VolunteerMatch profile. This YouTube video illustrates how companies are using this online approach to private sector social responsibility.

We have learned that North Dakota high school students in Project Lead the Way, HOSA-Future Health Professionals, or who take the ACT tests – are invited and eligible to post their profiles on STEM Premier.  Learn more about what this means for business and industry as well as institutions of higher ed at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PHtPAODmbqA.

 

 

 Educators and Trainers:

The latest in STEM conferences, professional development opportunities, and other news related to ND STEM Education can be found on our Blog page. Recent postings are featured on our Home page.

Computer Science is now officially included in STEM. Are you beginning to explore Computer Science curriculum or training? Consider these resources:

  • Code.org is known most for organizing the annual Hour of Code campaign. This non-profit is dedicated to expanding access to computer science and increasing participation by women and underrepresented minorities. Our vision is that every student in every school should have the opportunity to learn computer science, just like biology, chemistry or algebra.
  • Bootstrap (http://www.BootstrapWorld.org) is a research project at Brown University that offers a series of curricular modules built around purely mathematical programming.
  • The Exploring Computer Science professional development program is based on three major pillars: computer science content/concepts, inquiry, and equity.
  • The CSforAll Consortium provides a central resource for people interested in computer science (CS) education to find providers, schools, funders, and researchers focused on the goal of providing quality CS education to every child in the U.S.
