Building a Cross-Generational Community of STEM Educators

Presented by:

Principal investigators, faculty, participants, and alumni will describe the development across 10+ years of a Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program Track 1 project that has come to focus on community building among all members of the group. We show how this focus first developed organically and has been capitalized upon since the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic. Connections among multiple generations of alumni have led project staff to include intentional strategies to further develop and strengthen that specific type of relationship in an effort to support and retain STEM teachers at all stages of their careers both in our region and beyond.
