Welcome to the Siemens STEM Academy!

We are thrilled to officially launch the Siemens STEM Academy.  This initiative, which focuses on the collaboration of science, technology, engineering and math into what the Teaching Institute for Excellence in STEM education calls a "meta-discipline," will provide educators an opportunity to connect, communicate and collaborate with colleagues from around the globe. The Siemens STEM Academy is a multi-faceted program that includes:
  • a premier on-line community designed exclusively to foster STEM achievement through the sharing of best practices
  • a monthly webinar series that will feature today's leading scientists, academics, and personalities such as Dr. Michio Kaku, theoretical physicist and host of Science Channel's Sci Fi Science: Physics of the Impossible, to excite students and provide teachers with actionable recommendations for integrating STEM into the classroom
  • a week-long STEM immersion program that will enable 50 select teachers to meet in Washington, D.C. to engage with today's critical science thinkers and other peers from across the nation and visit leading institutions to see real-world applications of STEM subject matter
  • a two-week residential professional development program, Siemens Teachers As Researchers (STARS), for select middle school and high school teachers in which teachers engage in mentored research projects with top scientists and researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Oak Ridge, TN

We hope you are excited about the many benefits this program affords, and we look to you for help in shaping its direction.  With its many layers and components, the Siemens STEM Academy is ultimately a community comprised of educators who see the true power of STEM education in shaping the future of education and our society. Thanks for joining us on this adventure!
