Andrews Institute a Feature at NSTA National Conference
District leaders and school administrators from across the country are participating in the National Science Teachers Association National Conference in Nashville at the end of March. For the second year, TCU’s Andrews Institute of Mathematics & Science Education will be highlighted as an exemplary STEM Center.
STEM–Science, Technology, Engineering and Math education, is a growing area of emphasis in school districts across the country. And NSTA offers science educators the latest information in science content, teaching strategy and research to enhance and expand professional growth.
“Over the past decade, growth in STEM jobs is estimated to be nearly three times greater than that of non-stem jobs,” said Dr. Molly Weinburgh, director of the Andrews Institute. “Educational programs such as this are important to the field, but also have value to those who work on issues including health and technology–just to name a couple.”
Presentation topics range from digital tools to STEM literature, hands-on physics to DNA, and the Andrews Institute is a prominent feature in the event’s promotional video.
