ASSET (Achieving Student Success through Excellence in Teaching) is a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) initiative. Activities are hands-on and built around the powerful notion that teachers are both the targets and agents of change, and that only they can transform the way STEM is taught and learned. When teachers learn, students learn. When teachers teach teachers, teachers thrive and it leads to the continuous improvement of teaching practices and a deeper understanding of the scientific inquiry process. It also creates a supportive and capable network for continued learning.
