Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is seen by leaders from across the globe as key to economic success and prosperity. Einstein Fellows attempts to improve the state of STEM education, not only here in the United States, but internationally as well. As the body of STEM-learning research grows, this volume provides the unique perspective of nationally recognized educators who have spent, collectively, more than 400,000 hours at the interface between teaching and learning. Each chapter communicates how its author has implemented a specific STEM practice in the classroom and how the practice might be modified for use in other classrooms, schools, and learning environments.
