Equipping school leaders with strategies, tools, and resources to advocate for STEM is critical. This session will share how the development of a STEM Leadership Series has assisted a group of Arizona educators to define their vision, develop a theory of action, set benchmarks, and gauge progress- activities which they report as leading to increased implementation and accountability with STEM integration at their sites. The presentation will describe the process for developing a cohort during which leaders can engage in collaborative learning and share best practices and resources to support increased opportunities for teachers to engage with STEM content and industry.
