ASSET recently hosted an event for Remake Learning Days that invited educators to find new ways to engage their students this year. Remake Learning Days is an opportunity for organizations to create future-ready, hands-on, relevant and engaging educational experiences for kids and their families, caregivers and educators in greater Pittsburgh, West Virginia, and beyond.

At the event on May 22, Professional Development staff from ASSET helped teachers and administrators explore and understand new STEM materials and modules that aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS). 

Did you know there are 3 million more STEM jobs than workers to fill them? With the right tools and training, teachers have the power to increase student achievement and prepare them for a career in STEM. ASSET’s Project-based Learning through Teacher Externships program aims to empower teachers to introduce real-world problem solving skills to the classroom and prepare students to success in the 21 st century workforce.

ASSET invites you to participate in this program, which includes no-cost professional development on PBL and an opportunity to shadow a professional in the STEM industry.
