STEM Unit Workshops

CT Science Center STEM Unit Workshops

Our STEM Units, supported by United Technologies Corporation, are 6–8 week curricula you can implement in your classroom. STEM Units were designed in collaboration with teachers from Hartford Public Schools and the Capitol Region Education Council to follow the engineering practices model of the Next Generation Science Standards and integrate Common Core State Standards for math and language arts while supporting the current Connecticut Science Framework.
These two day workshops are designed to immerse you in an abbreviated version of these units to support your implementation in the classroom.
