Description

We will engage teachers in Latin America to develop and lead hands-on, student-centered, project-based learning activities that foster STEM skills, especially focused on empowering low socio-economic status students. Key outputs include a curriculum of open-sourced and vetted activities, a community of skilled teacher-evangelists, and increased MIT/J-WEL regional outreach.

Topics: Project-Based Learning Teacher Training
