The STEMersion project is a one-week professional development during the summer, designed for middle school and high school science, technology, or math teachers. 25 teachers will be selected to participate, and will spend time each day at top STEM business in the Kanawha Valley area. STEMersion is designed to support teachers in their understanding of the various professions that require STEM skills. Participating teachers will take this real-world experience back to their schools to impact instruction, and encourage students to follow STEM career pathways. Teachers will receive a $600.00 stipend at the conclusion of the project, and can also receive college graduate credit.
STEMersion is entering into its third year. Click here to watch a video highlighting STEMersion 2016.
