The Siemens STEM Institute is a one-of-a-kind program that promotes hands-on, real-world integration of science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) in the classroom. A diverse group of fifty educators were selected as STEM Fellows to attend a week-long professional development experience, hosted at the world headquarters of Discovery Communications, located outside of Washington D.C. Fellows will be exposed to leaders, personalities and innovators whose work across STEM disciplines shape and define our world today. The week will be filled with guest speakers, field trips to leading institutions where Fellows will observe real-world applications of STEM subject matter, and networking opportunities with like-minded peers from across the nation. In addition to broad-based STEM applications, each Fellow will be assigned to a thematic working group that will provide additional deep-dive exposure.
