CSU Making Sense of Place 

Place-based Education makes STEM locally relevant because…

  • Rooted in local context
  • Authentic, experiential learning
  • Socio-scientific issues – e.g., human-environmental interactions

Our Place-based Education PD series integrates four components

  1. STEM content
  2. High-leverage teaching practices
  3. Social justice
  4. Networking with mentor teachers
