A STEM Teacher Preparation Program for Rural Kansas
Dr. Janet Stramel, Fort Hays State University
Fort Hays State University offers a pre-service education program designed to place STEM teachers in rural communities in Kansas. Candidates have opportunities to work in a six-week summer institute for area youth, apply for a generous scholarship, participate in an early rural field experience, attend regional and national STEM conferences, and volunteer to provide informal STEM education activities in the local community. The program includes unique courses focused on issues related to teaching in a rural community. The program is funded by an NSF Robert Noyce Scholarship grant.
