New STEM Education Center for Worcester Polytech

Starting this fall, a new STEM Education Center at Worcester Polytechnic Institute will offer students the opportunity to pursue a four-year degree in a STEM discipline and initial teaching licensure simultaneously.  “If our teachers are not prepared to help students understand the type of careers they can have and the excitement of the work that can be done, we won’t have the workforce that can turn our economy around,” said Martha Cyr, executive director of the Center.  Practicing teachers will also be able to receive a master's degree and specialized professional development training in STEM fields.  Massachusetts Lt. Governor Tim Murray and National Science Foundation chief for teacher preparation Barbara Olds attended an inaugural event for the center earlier this week.
