Teachers Benefit from STEM Grant

Posted: Updated:

Minot State University received a grant that will benefit educators across the state.

The STEM grant awards MSU $531,000 a year for two years. In exchange, the university will provide professional development for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics teachers. For the next two summers, the school will host 35 graduate level classes for elementary and high school teachers to enhance their curriculum to better educate their students. 

"Teachers need to work with the students, get them involved, especially in experimentation and inquiry and understanding what's going on and be able to apply that in different situations.  And if we can better equip the teachers to do that, that should help the students improve their performance in those areas and go out more ready for jobs especially in those areas," says associate professor Dr. Bob Crackel.

The grant will cover tuition and fees, material costs, and room and board for about 40 teachers.
