CDE Program Hosts STEM Academy

Published in The Racine Journal Times 

“The Center for Developing Excellence’s STEM Academy hosted its first Professional Development Institute Sept. 25-26. The Institute was entitled “STEM-ming the Global Water Crisis” and was held in conjunction with the Rotary Districts 6360, 6380 and 6310’s Thirsting-to-Serve Water Conference in Grand Rapids, Mich. The event was hosted at Amway’s World Headquarters in Ada, Mich., and at Calvin College’s Prince Conference Center in Grand Rapids.”

Fellow Racine teachers commented:

“The STEM-ming the Global Water Drinking Institute was extremely beneficial because it was not a theory workshop, but a project-based learning environment that simulated what students would actually be doing in class…This type of training builds confidence in novice teachers and gives more creative juices to seasoned STEM teachers.” – Anisa Diaz

“I’ve never been to a conference that has filled my head and my heart so much.” – Joan Roehre
