Sessions offered to prepare schools for STEM or STEAM designation

What does it takes to be a STEM or STEAM school, as designated by the State of Ohio? Designation requires more than adding a robotics club, going 1:1 with technology, or offering more science and math courses.

The Ohio STEM Learning Network and the Ohio Department of Education will be hosting four regional meetings this fall to assist schools interested in applying for STE(A)M designation.

Join us to learn about the attributes of a STE(A)M designated school, from creating a culture of innovation to building partnerships with local community and industry partners, to building career pathways for students.

All four sessions will review the Quality Model for STEM and STEAM schools, the newly updated designation application, and the new STEM designation rubric. This professional development opportunity is offered free of charge. Principals, curriculum directors, or any other staff responsible for creating/leading a schools’ STEM culture are encouraged to attend.

Region Date Time Host School
Northwest Ohio October 10, 2019 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM Bigelow Hill Intermediate School, Findlay
Northeast Ohio October 16, 2019 9:30 AM – 2:30 PM Bio-Med Science Academy, Rootstown

    Please disregard previous registrations for the STEAM Designation workshop. I will now be attending the November 14 session in Kettering and not the NE or NW options. Thank you!

  2. Bill Wagner says:

    I can’t remember if I’ve registered for this or not… better twice than not.

  3. Jim Bader says:

    Hate to be that guy, but I am looking for confirmation I registered for the workshop in Rootstown, particularly now that it is full. Do not want to be a gate crasher if I did not register.

    Thanks.
