Just finished up conducting five days of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) teacher training in Dugger, Indiana. It was really nice to spend five full days with the same group of STEM Teacher Training by Dr. Diana Wehrell-Grabowskielementary teachers. With five days of hands-on, inquiry-based STEM training the teachers were able to be  truly immersed in STEM. Dugger Elementary Principal, Beth Langel-Waterman wrote the STEM grant which provided funds for the consulting, stipends for the teachers, as well as funding for teachers to buy STEM materials and STEM literature for their classrooms. I left this training on Friday feeling quite assured that the teachers will indeed implement STEM philosophy and content within their classrooms. There definitely was transformation of thinking, a paradigm shift within all participants. Check out the following news story of the training covered by WTHI-TV News 10.
