STEM-ing the Skills Gap


Success Story


Adam Kelley & Melinda Steele

TGR EDU: Create Participants

Through their participation in TGR EDU: Create’s weeklong training immersion, two passionate educators, Adam Kelley and Melinda Steele, used the Engineering Design Process to facilitate new project-based learning. The elementary school STEM teachers effectively collaborated with teachers from various schools and disciplines to take their curriculum to a whole new level by incorporating strategies gained throughout the week.

"The engineering process of TGR EDU: Create provides learning opportunities for both teachers and their students. Implementing the Ask, Plan, Create and Improve concepts in the classroom would significantly benefit any educator and drive his/her students to further excel."
