The training has excellent content and well-paced. Angela tailored the presentation to our needs and provided our teaching artists with useful materials that prompt further thinking on how to integrate the Arts in teaching STEM concepts. – Ploi Pagdalian, Senior Director of Programs, Arts for Learning

Pike Township has partnered with The STEM Connection for summer programming,  field trips, after-school clubs, STEM kit distribution, and professional development.  They continue to be thoughtful in meeting the needs of our students, teachers, and our community by offering rich, engaging opportunities in all that they do.  All staff is knowledgeable in STEM teaching and learning and goes above and beyond to make STEM education equitable.  – Erin Naylor, District STEM Coach at MSD Pike Township

The team at The STEM Connection immediately engaged all staff members in meaningful dialogue and activities that effectively created a sense of ownership in STEM education for all students. Through a series of realistic examples, our staff felt supported and encouraged to explore after the professional development experience. – Eric Schommer, Principal, St. Monica Catholic School
