140228 STEM integration report coverThe National Academy of Engineering and the National Research Council has released findings on STEM Integration in K-12 Education: Status, Prospects, and an Agenda for Research.  Based upon a two-year study by an NAE/NRC Committee, the report provides a descriptive framework, explores design implications and implementation context suggested by the research, and presents recommendations and a research agenda to further advance integrated STEM education.

I had the chance to learn about the findings first-hand from the Committee Chair, Dr. Margaret Honey, at the NRC-hosted convening STEM Learning is Everywhere held at the National Academies office at UC Irvine earlier this month.  It’s an energizing affirmation of the journey we’re undertaking with STEMx – and further actions for the future!
