Project Inspire, Engage, Empower and Connect will increase the number of military-connected students enrolled in STEM courses by creating a K-12 Stem Pipeline.
This project will establish a STEM science curriculum in the elementary schools, aligning with the middle school. Schools will be supported with the integration of existing science curriculum with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) while partnering with STEM professionals, researchers and field experts.
Project Inspire will focus on 3 strategies. Strategy one focuses on establishing extra-curricular activities for military-connected students aligned to NGSS in the K-5 schools, generating initial interest in STEM. Strategy two and three focus on establishing in class curriculum and instruction supports for students aligned to NGSS in K-8 schools.
