Interested in joining a Project Team?
Project Teams are comprised of small groups of individuals who collaborate on time-bound projects that address the challenges underlying the shortage of excellent STEM teachers. Driven by partners and coordinated by 100Kin10 through in-person workshops and others supports, Project Teams offer a flexible yet structured process for learning, ideating, and implementing - together.

Back in August, we opened up the call for folks in the network to step up with ideas for our second cycle of Project Teams — a way to collaborate on bold ideas that tackle the Grand Challenges. Since then, 11 exciting projects have surfaced and are now seeking members:

+ Supporting STEM Education in Rural Communities
+ Establishing PLCs for Rural STEM Teachers and University Scientists
+ Establishing Statewide Mentor Teacher Networks
+ Examining Requirements for Math Teacher Preparation Coursework 
+ Increasing Visibility of Women in STEM
+ Developing Performance-Based Assessments in Science   
+ Developing Strategies to Advance Personally Relevant Pedagogy
+ Developing STEM Content Micro Credentials
+ Preparing Teachers for High-Needs Schools
+ Bridging the Divide Between Regional Teacher Prep Programs and K-12 Needs
+ Using Local STEM Research to Design Context-Specific Learning Experiences

We invite you to learn about Project Teams and each of this year's project ideas here: and if you're interested, use this form to apply to join a team!
