Supporting STEM Teaching and Learning through Communities

S²TLC (Supporting STEM Teaching and Learning through Communities)
S²TLC is building and supporting a community and pipeline of STEM educators that explore deep content knowledge, inquiry-based and culturally responsive practices, and the integration of technology in grades 6-12 STEM classrooms. Face-to-face and virtual communities of practice are hallmarks of the project that will connect teachers in western Massachusetts during and beyond the project. It is a six-year NSF-funded partnership of UMass Amherst, Greenfield, Holyoke, and Springfield public schools, Mahar Regional school district and Hitchcock Center for the Environment.
