The White House is hosting its annual Science Fair today to celebrate the student winners of a broad range of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) competitions from across the country. As strong advocates of STEM education, we’re proud to announce that the White House has highlighted our efforts in its official press release today.
In line with our mission to help all learners reach their full potential, Edmodo is creating a dedicated STEM Community that will be free and accessible to K-12 teachers around the world. This Community (which will be available in the coming weeks) will serve as a place for teachers to connect and collaborate with each other, and to share and discuss STEM resources, ideas, lesson plans, and best practices with peers around the world. Teachers will be able to use these resources and ideas in their classrooms, helping students become familiar with and build their STEM skills, especially in schools where a formal STEM curriculum has not yet been adopted.
This commitment expands upon Edmodo’s previously existing subject communities in Science, Math, and Computer Technology, and provides a new, global community to engage, excite, and expose the millions of teachers and students on Edmodo to STEM education. Edmodo Communities are a great place for teachers to learn about others’ ideas and to obtain and share the latest and greatest resources, so if you haven’t joined one yet, be sure to check them out!
We’re excited to see how this collaboration can positively impact student learning in the classroom. Check back in the coming weeks for further details on how to join this new Community.
