Pathway Partners' Community of Practice Series

Through a generous grant from the Bosch Community Fund, Carnegie Science Center hosts a free weekly learning opportunity designed to support schools and their stakeholders in STEM education.

Each week, a new asynchronous resource or link to a live event is posted on STEMisphere available to Pathway Partners for a limited time. Please check back each week for the latest offering. 

Week 5: Digital Tools' Impact

For our fourth video, we take a look at the impact that digital tools can have on K–12 students in any instructional setting. Explore two valuable options and learn how each can be used to help develop necessary STEM skills and competencies. Finally, this video will introduce viewers to resources that aim to support the integration of digital tools into student learning.

We need your help forming an online Educator Advisory Group!

In an effort to improve upon our support of schools and educators, we created a survey designed to gain teacher feedback regarding professional development preferences and experiences. Additionally, our hope is that a portion of the educator respondents will be willing to take part in an advisory group to act as a mechanism for gaining up-to-date feedback on trends and needs. Take the Survey.


The anticipated long-term outcomes of the Community of Practice Series include: 


  • More collaboration between schools and businesses 

  • Increased confidence among teachers and administrators 

  • Improved STEM education in the region and beyond 

  • Form a Community of Practice to share best practices and create new knowledge in the field of STEM education
