Enhancing Teachers' Voices in Policy Making Related to Implementation of K-12 Engineering Education
This event initiated a national dialog on how K-12 STEM education—working in classrooms and after-/out-of-school settings—can be more engaged at the level of policy and decision making to improve and expand the reach and quality of K-12 engineering education. Proceedings from the convocation and a brief overview of the Proceedings, as well as videos from the plenary sessions are available.
The Proceedings and its implications for teacher leadership were also discussed during a featured panel and a subsequent session at the 2017 annual meeting of the National Science Teachers Association. More information about the session
