The BEP Foundation’s STEM Factor is a teacher externship program that connects teachers with area businesses in STEM fields. STEM Factor teacher externships will allow teachers to see real-world examples of what they are teaching in classrooms to enable them to develop hands-on, robust learning experiences for their students that help make important connections between the classroom and real life.
When students can more effectively grasp the material, they can think beyond a book, a whiteboard, or a test, which ultimately means they will be more adept at the critical thinking and problem-solving skills that are crucial for success today and in the future. STEM Factor 2016 is currently being planned. To stay updated on the latest information regarding STEM Factor this year follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook.
