Bringing STEM Within Reach of All Students

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

There is a well-recognized need for districts to prepare more students to participate in STEM-related careers. Almost all college STEM majors require students to study physics, chemistry and calculus. Students who have studied those subjects in high school have a distinct advantage, yet many African-American and Hispanic students lack the opportunity to do so. New teaching strategies, combined with a physics-chemistry-biology science sequence and the correct alignment of mathematics and science courses, can bring a STEM career within reach of all students.
