The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) presented the State Board of Education (SBE) with updated science standards for K-12 schools at the August 11 SBE meeting. MDE has scheduled a Public Comment Period for seven weeks, during which the public is invited to see, review and comment on these proposed Michigan Science Standards, as well as on proposed social studies standards. Comments may be submitted online or at public comment sessions being held around the state. MDE intends to share a summary of these public comments with the State Board of Education at its October 13, 2015 meeting.
Researchers are invited to sign up to present a Work-in-Progress Brown Bags fall term.
Work-in-Progress Brown Bags give faculty, fellows, students, and collaborators associated with the CREATE for STEM Institute an opportunity to introduce ongoing STEM education research (K-16) and receive feedback from their peers.
