Educators Dive Further into STEM Opportunities

More than 60 teachers and principals from Diocesan schools went on an Authentic STEM Journey with Penn State CSATS-Center for Science and the Schools earlier this week. Collectively, the educators learned of a plethora of resources to support STEM within the classroom, as well as ways to sustain STEM education through grants and additional professional development.

The workshop at the Diocesan Center in Harrisburg was hosted by the Office of Catholic Education. It highlighted how to unite STREAM (science, technology, religion, engineering, arts and mathematics) with the Corporal Works of Mercy by creating and acting on awareness of our global and local community needs, including food inequity, clean water and sanitation challenges and sustainable energy. The day concluded with educators being grouped by grade level to collaborate on how to “STEMify” a classroom lesson.
