Lively New NSTA Book Explores Why STEM Education Matters and Where It’s Headed

ARLINGTON, Va.--()--Calling STEM “a white-hot, transformative revolution in schooling as we know it,” author Jeff Weld offers both context and best practices for teaching science, technology, engineering, and math. Creating a STEM Culture for Teaching and Learning is a new NSTA Press book for educators, business professionals, and policy makers who want to better prepare K–12 students for the future.

The goal of the book is to tell the story of STEM in “a how-to, can-do, who’s-who, you-too manual and memoir based on the experiences of leaders who walk the talk,” Weld says.

Creating a STEM Culture draws on the theory, policy, and best practices behind nationally recognized models for STEM. Topics include why STEM matters; what STEM networks do; how community buy-in for STEM builds; what makes school-business STEM partnerships work; and what STEM means for teachers, learning, and assessment. Each chapter is sprinkled with light-hearted case studies that complement the topic at hand.
