Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) Resources

What Constitutes a STEM Program of Study?: The acronym STEM is fairly specific in nature referring to science, technology, engineering and mathematics; however, the concept of STEM encompasses much more than the sum of its parts. Workers in STEM occupations use science and math to solve problems and drive our nation's innovation and competitiveness by generating new ideas, new companies and new industries. STEM programs of study are typically classified based upon four occupational clusters: computer technology; mathematical sciences; engineering and surveying; and natural, physical and life sciences. STEM programs in Florida's Public Schools must embrace the integration of technology and engineering in science and mathematics.

PBS Teachers STEM Education Resource Center: PBS offers the opportunity to explore new ideas and new worlds related to STEM learning through television and online content.

NASA STEM Program: As the United States begins the second century of flight, the Nation must maintain its commitment to excellence in STEM education to ensure that the next generation of Americans can accept the full measure of their roles and responsibilities in shaping the future.

The STEM Education News: The STEM Education News (previously the TCEB or Triangle Coalition Electronic Bulletin) is an e-newsletter featuring articles on science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education. Articles highlight the latest programs, resources, reports, and other news related to STEM education.

Science Math Master (SM2) Model Lessons: Funded by Florida Teacher Quality Grant, the Science Math Master is a professional development program for high school Biology and Geometry teachers composed of face-to-face collaborative training workshops and on-line science and math resources for teachers, including modules, videos, coursework examples, demonstration ideas and curriculum tools.
