STEM is more than just a topic, it’s a place where disciplines converge and overlap. It’s also a place to teach the new NYS Computer Science Standards - and have fun doing it! In this webinar, you’ll learn about some specific STEM programs that can be applied to K-12 classes. In addition, you’ll learn how those STEM programs relate to digital citizenship.
