Which types of STEM courses are currently being offered, and which are likely to be implemented in the next 1-2 years?
Which crosscutting concepts from NGSS do educators prioritize when teaching?
Which science and engineering practices do educators prioritize when teaching?
What are the biggest challenges facing STEM Education?
Which grants from private sources do educators use to fund new STEM Education Initiatives?
When assessing new instructional materials, how important is it to include project-based learning, technology, science and engineering practices, and other instructional strategies?
What types of professional development activities do educators value most?
