Events Details

The meriSTEM Centre @ NIE  is inviting interested teachers to participate in our "Empowering STEM Education Professionals Programme".

This programme aims to (1) enhance the quality of STEM literacy, (2) build a community of STEM educators, (3) encourage more pervasive adoption of STEM education in schools, and (4) to build partnerships between schools, NIE and industries for STEM education.

The programme consists of a professional development workshop segment, a competition, an award ceremony, and a learning journey for the winning teams.

The programme theme for this year is Sustainable Energy. The competition is open from 12 Nov 2020 until 28 March 2021

In the spirit of collaboration and the interdisciplinary nature of STEM, we would like to invite four teachers from at least TWO departments to participate in the workshop and the competition. They will work together to design a lesson integrating a STEM activity for a level of students of their choice. 

Interested parties are encouraged to sign up for our online workshop on 10 November 2020 to learn more about the competition and hear from energy experts.

The winning teams will receive S$1,000 and another S$500 will go directly to their school. The winning lesson package will be published on the meriSTEM@NIE website. Team members will embark on a learning exchange to Bangkok in 2021 (if travel is permitted) to share and learn about integrated STEM activities.

We hope your school will join us in this exciting journey. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Associate Professor Tan Aik Ling at aikling.tan@nie.edu.sg.
