This video will describe the ways in which the Ohio University RALLY (Rural Appalachian Leaders and Local Youth) for STEM Noyce project has developed and nurtured partnerships to support STEM education that integrates mathematics, science, and computer science in formal and informal settings. The goals of the RALLY for STEM program are to recruit, train and provide induction support for secondary STEM teachers teaching in high-need schools. We aim to develop teacher candidates’ pedagogical content knowledge, foster their identities as STEM teachers, support them in connecting their STEM experiences and content expertise to grades 4-12 classrooms, and prepare them to serve the diverse student needs of rural Appalachia and beyond. The video is set in the Southeastern Appalachian region of Ohio and features partnerships with community organizations such as the Ohio Valley Museum of Discovery, local education agencies such as the Alexander Local Schools, and university partners such Kids on Campus. The video will highlight community STEM events hosted by the project team and its partners, describe participants and activities, and discuss outcomes that broaden STEM participation in the region.
