MSU STEM Grant

Posted: Updated:

Minot State University has been awarded $531,000 per year for two years for its project "Learning STEMs from Experience."

STEM is an integration of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

The project offers over 35 graduate courses for K - 12 STEM teachers, to update their background

knowledge in their area of study, and work on getting graduate degrees with no cost to them.

The grant covers funds for textbooks, and all classes for teachers across North Dakota.

Most classes are offered in the summer, but there are some online 16-week classes during the school year.

(Laurie Geller, Co-Principal of STEM Project) "They learn a lot. And they learn a lot that maybe they didn't learn when they were undergrads. Because now they've had time to go out and teach and now think more about what they can do to improve, or maybe what they don't know."

These classes are open to any STEM teachers in the state of North Dakota who teach K - 12.

To get involved, contact Laurie Geller at 858-3282.
