Student Voice in Curriculum
In 2021, STEMteachersNYC initiated a truly unique approach to supporting student voice perspectives in STEM into curriculum and our professional learning workshops. The brainchild of workshop teacher-leaders Glen Stuart and Kerry Kline, this is an invitation to high school students to attend the Applied Panarchy in Environmental Science workshop along with their classroom teacher, and is meant to be an opportunity for high school students to contribute to the curricular outcomes of a selection of our workshops.
This summer the leaders of the Summer STEM Institute workshop “Applied Panarchy in Environmental Science” invite a total of 6-8 high school students to attend (at most two per any teacher), with their teacher, following a modified schedule and daily debrief, to learn the inner workings of the material and to share student perspectives on curricular outcomes.
Students attend for free. Not available for all workshops. For more information or to register, please contact [email protected].
STEMteachersNYC provides several internship and camp programs directed at middle and high school students, to bring together local and international students around STEM topics, design challenges, and a focus on understanding how educational nonprofits function. Each summer we welcome a group of campers to Teachers College, Columbia University and partner schools, for workshops exploring introductory science, technology, math, and engineering skills and challenges. Interns contribute directly to the running of professional development programs offered in the summer, producing both essential workshop and marketing tools, as well as a strategic plan for their own future organization. Both camp and internship experiences include participation in concurrent teacher workshops.
2022 Internship experiences included a four-week Summer Institute study of educational organizations, and a Thanksgiving intensive non-profit organizational study/Student Project Incubator.
