i3 Grant Partnership: Creating a new model for high school STEM education
UW Today feature "Creating a new model for high school STEM education". "Rigorous studies in science, technology, engineering and math, with industry mentoring for both students and teachers, and maybe even a longer school year — these are key features of a new five-year, $4.1 million grant for the UW’s Institute for Science and Mathematics Education, Bellevue's Sammamish High School and several partner organizations.
The project is called Reimagining Career and College Readiness: STEM, Rigor, and Equity in a Comprehensive High School, and is being funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Investing in Innovation, or i3, program. The UW institute is teaming with the Bellevue School District, the College Board, the Washington STEM Center and other organizations for the work. STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math."
