Who We Are, What We Do
NCSCE is a national non-profit organization that supports a community of teachers and learners in all sectors of STEM education (k-12, undergraduate, informal, and graduate). Through professional development institutes, topical symposia, materials, workshops and mentoring activities, we help educators in and outside the classroom improve their educational practice by connecting STEM learning to real-world issues of civic importance.
NCSCE programs put STEM into context, so what is inaccessible becomes accessible, what is uninteresting becomes interesting, and what is abstract becomes concrete and meaningful. Our aim is to empower learners by showing them that their knowledge matters, and what they learn today can help solve some of the biggest problems of tomorrow.
