Greeting from the Stiles-Nicholson STEM Teacher Academy (SNSTA) at FAU Schools!

Led by nationally recognized STEM specialists and industry leaders, along with the SNSTA collaborators, we offer educators hands-on professional development. Our Professional Learning Series workshops are aligned to curriculum standards so that teachers can share what they learned with their hundreds of students. STEM is not a curriculum- It is not another ingredient in the academic kitchen - it is the recipe for helping learners apply their knowledge & skills, collaborate with their peers, and understand the relevance of what they are learning. Teachers do make a difference in student achievement— and it can be impactful!
