UO program that trains grade school teachers receives $810k grant

An $810,000 grant has been awarded to the University of Oregon’s Center for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math Careers through Outreach, Research and Education, or STEM CORE. It will provide funding over a three year period to support several 3rd through 8th grade teachers in Lane County.

The goal of the program is to support teachers from high need schools with professional development activities. This money will go toward training that is designed to help teachers to create projects that will engage students in real world and career contexts.

STEM CORE’s mission is to produce a “broader and deeper pool” of teachers in the STEM areas in Oregon. STEM CORE works with education faculty, K-12 educator, science researchers, mathematicians, STEM industry and government partnerships to develop new models for student learning and engagement.
