Expanding STEM Learning Opportunities in Rural Schools

Rural educational communities are unique and vibrant but often have fewer obvious opportunities for high-quality STEM learning than other regional areas. An overarching question is, how might rural educators embrace the power of place-based education to embed STEM learning experiences and build 21st century skills for all students? This white paper reports on the impact of a comprehensive professional learning program in rural communities and highlights the supports teachers and students found most useful, teacher perceptions of professional growth, and the benefits and challenges encountered when integrating STEM into instructional practices from grades K to 12. Learn more about the power of place and how this approach to STEM education ensures all students can experience deeper learning and hope for their future.
