Countless organizations are developing STEM content for the education sector. Yet little objective information exists to help decision makers identify high-quality materials. The GSA STEM Certification Program addresses this need by certifying materials that align to the GSA STEM Education Framework. It outlines 26 features of quality STEM education in three fundamental areas, and reviews are performed by a panel of academic experts with deep knowledge related to the subject matter, grade level, and intended audience of the materials under review.
"There is a broad consensus around the need to bring STEM literacy and computational thinking concepts and practices to all students. As a result, there is a pronounced need for the GSA STEM Education Framework for schools and educational decision-makers. We are very proud to have earned this certification," said Jason McKenna, Director of Educational Strategy at Robomatter.
