The STEM Certificate is a rigorous, online, four-course program that provides K-12 educators in all disciplines including the arts and humanities, school leaders and librarians, with both the foundational STEM pedagogy, and the hands-on experience to be successful integrating STEM in their classrooms and schools.

The Certificate is delivered as a fully online, facilitated program with an active learning virtual lab experience. Students receive, for a nominal fee, a coding robot and instruction for classroom use. The four courses are offered in 7-week or 15-week sessions each semester. Students may opt to take one or all courses in each semester.

This program is provided through funding by the Martinson Family Foundation. Since 1998, the Martinson Family Foundation has funded and guided dedicated programs at universities to enhance STEM instruction for K-12 students. The Foundation seeks innovation in curriculum, teaching methods, and professional development.

Students who opt to register for courses for graduate credit will be offered the opportunity for those classes, 12 credits, to be applied toward the 36-credit Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology or a Master of Arts degree in Educational Technology with School Library Media Specialist certification.

If you are already enrolled in either MA program and would like to earn the STEM Certificate, please contact your advisor. You do not have to be enrolled in the STEM Certificate program to enroll in these classes. All Ed Tech students may register for these classes.
