Policymakers are increasingly emphasizing the importance of STEM education in PK-12 education. But just how are school leaders supposed to find the funds to implement STEM and STEAM programs for their students, let alone deliver essential training to teachers who may have no experience whatsoever with science, technology, engineering or math? In this hour-long webcast, we look at how federal and state policymakers are addressing STEM education and four ways districts can get creative with funds available through federal and state programs.

Join Julie Evans as she reveals the latest data from the highly respected (and massive!) Speak Up Research Project for Digital Learning — with a special focus on STEM and STEAM. How are STEM and STEAM impacting teachers? What do the students think about all of it? And what value do parents place on one of the biggest education pushes happening now: the integration of science, technology, engineering, the arts and math across the curriculum? The latest Speak Up survey collected data from more than 500,000 educators, administrators, students and parents and is the largest research effort of its kind. This one-hour event, hosted by Editorial Director David Nagel, will be packed with data and fresh insights for those looking to promote, support or even just get a handle on STEAM in their own schools.
