We’re all familiar with STE(A)M courses and STE(A)M hours; but what about a classroom or school that exudes a culture of STE(A)M thinking? How can we position students to use design thinking, exemplify the use of math practice standards, and experience the cross-cutting concepts of the Next Generation Science Standards throughout the day? This course will focus on designing instruction to reflect a STE(A)M culture across all activities of the day. Participants will design lesson plans and structures to use with their students.


  1. Develop activities and visual resources for creating a STE(A)M Culture
  2. Understand the engineering design process
  3. Design authentic problems to build STE(A)M mindsets
  4. Infuse transformational technology
  5. Integrate the arts through design

Access to MyQPortal is included for all participants while enrolled in the VLC. 25 contact hours.
