BN STEM is raising awareness regarding the connection between the classroom and the workplace. The “Classroom Connection Platform” (CCP) is a tool educators can use to connect curriculum with the real world through partnerships with industry professionals. Industry professional can engage on this platform by creating a profile and serving as a local workplace resource. By searching the repository of content providers educator can connect, develop, and engage our students in STEM education.

BN STEM has created “ The Loop”, offering monthly networking events that allow local educators to experience the STEM within McLean County. Explore a manufacturing plant, tour a hospital, take a ride a hay rack ride through a farm, etc.....all while learning about the various careers within, career pathways, and the skills needed to acquire. STEM resides within all disciplines, so we encourage all K-12 Educators to join! More information and registration can be found on BN STEM website.
