Ignited – STEM Exploration Externships

What We Do

STEM Exploration Externships Ignited partners with local technology companies who host a team of five teachers within their organization for one week. The teachers gather information on how 21st Century Skills are applied in the workplace, including descriptions of the project or challenge being addressed, the particular skills being demonstrated, and the background of the individual that allowed them to acquire and develop those skills. Participants then work together to generate a range of ideas for how these examples can be incorporated into STEM content and engaging new curriculum for their classrooms. 

“The classroom should be an entrance into the world, not an escape from it.”
– John Ciardi, Poet and Educator
