The Smithsonian K-12 STEM Road mapping took place in Washington D.C. from July 20th-25th. Warsaw Community Schools was represented by 15 educators and community members. The team included elementary, middle and high school teachers and administrators along with district administrators and two community STEM advisers from the local orthopedic industry. The team spent an intensive week assessing current programming, future needs, specific timelines, and the individuals responsible for action on each step. The team will present the roadmap to faculty, staff, and the school board for implementation. Dr. David Hoffert, Superintendent of Schools stated, “The week was highly productive and for the first time in Warsaw Community Schools’ history, a solid vertical alignment of STEM curriculum has been articulated. This alignment will play a vital part in moving our STEM curriculum forward in every school and with every student.” On Tuesday, August 19th, the team will share their roadmap to the School Board of Trustees at the regularly scheduled board work session.
