STEM Teacher Quality Initiative

The STEM Teacher Quality Initiative (STEM TQ) is a STEMpact St. Louis regional effort to develop exemplary teachers who can provide quality learning in STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics), leading to enhanced outcomes for K-8 students. It is a collaborative endeavor to impact education in the metropolitan area.

This focused, year-long program helps motivate science, technology, engineering and math teachers to increase their STEM knowledge, pass this knowledge on to students and learn how to integrate STEM into their grade level curriculum . The Institute for School Partnership supports this teacher professional development program by providing meeting space, administrative assistance, and guidance to the STEMpact corporate funders.
