Installing a passion for discovering science and math in children at a young age is formative in their educational developmentTaking steps to ensure the immersion of elementary level children in the universe of the scientific arts will open them up to endless learning opportunities.

Recently, the Oklahoma State Department of Education granted Edmond Public Schools with additional fund for a new program that will aid in improving the knowledge of elementary school students in the realms of science and math. The Department of Education awarded the district $200,000 for STEM learning, or science, technology, engineering and math instructions.

The “Every Day Elementary STEM for All” program is a professional development undertaking that will enable teachers to undergo more intensive training on the subjects of science, technology, engineering and math. A two-week summer institute and three follow-up sessions will be held to give instructors a wider perspective of influence in these topics. A student achievement data report will be submitted by the faculty to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the lessons taught after the two-week summit.

The STEM program aims to improve education provided at the elementary level when it comes to science and math most especially in English Language Learners (ELL) and on Individualized Education Plan (IEP).
