We are working to improve STEM education in formal and informal science settings and conducting research with students, families and educators. Our partners include schools, museums, science centers and research institutes.
North Carolina science educators learned how they can use awe to increase their students' interest and motivation to learn science during a daylong virtual workshop.
EdNC highlights the Friday Institute for their monthly feature, the NC STEM ScoreCard, which builds broader awareness of how P-20 STEM education is being nurtured across North Carolina.
A partnership between our Families and Museums Exploring (FAME) project and Marbles Kids Museum that gave North Carolina families a chance to participate in STEM-related activities will be recognized with an award from the North Carolina Science, Mathematics and Technology Education Center this spring.
