Purdue partners with LSC to promote STEM education

Purdue is partnering with the Lafayette School Corporation to help teachers meet the learning needs of students in science, technology, engineering and mathematics courses.

A $246,000 grant from the Indiana Department of Education Math Science Partnership will provide professional development and content learning for teachers and a summer STEM experience for students.

Help from Purdue’s Science Express, which delivers research-grade instruments to high schools, will allow teachers to incorporate analytical technologies in the classroom and advance the technical ability of their students.

Throughout the school year, teachers will participate in additional development consisting of lesson planning, classroom observations and technology training.
