Across the country, as school curriculum and teaching methods are changing, the Michigan Science Center (MiSci) is becoming a hub for best practices in science education.
"Professional development opportunities for teachers are essential in promoting STEM discovery and education," says Tonya Matthews, Michigan Science Center president and CEO. "It's critical that our teaching methods and curriculum adapt to help students better understand the exciting possibilities of STEM ... We're excited for this opportunity to support both teacher development and student education."
With a vision to become a hub of STEM learning in Michigan, the Michigan Science Center not only provides hands-on, interactive exhibits for curious minds of all ages to discover, explore and appreciate STEM, the organization also supports science education through its Traveling Science Program, which visits 41 counties across the state. By hosting professional development opportunities, such as the Summer Institute, MiSci continues to demonstrate its support for STEM learning and experiences.
