  Bridging the Gap unites STEM educators

STEM leaders and educators recently gathered in Raleigh to share ideas and resources in topics ranging from personalized learning to biomedical technology to using drones as part of the seventh annual Bridging the Gap Conference. This highly-attended event annually attracts education and business leaders throughout the state, and EdNC did a great job capturing some of the highlights from this year's event. Read the story. One of the sections notes remarks from BWF CASMT awardee Michelle Ellis discussing instructional practices to address equity issues in the STEM classroom. STEM West Director Carol Moore and Tracy Hall of Education Matters in Catawba Valley also spent time talking about students at a particularly difficult stage: eighth grade. Yasmin Bendaas did a fabulous job capturing the pulse and conversations at this year's Bridging the Gap - worth a look when you can get a chance. Please enjoy your e-Update.
