The resources on this page are intended to support implementation of Idaho’s Science Standards approved in 2018. These standards ask students to think and act like scientists by engaging in the heart of science – INQUIRY. This paradigm shift requires students to demonstrate command of knowledge of scientific principles, processes, and content by performing as scientists do.

Professional Development Opportunities
I-STEM Summer Institutes

Registration Open February 2 - March 2, 2020. i-STEM is a summer professional development opportunity for educators. During four days, participants attend a strand, attend general sessions, hear from keynote speakers and network with their peers. Strand instruction is focused on hands-on, project-based learning with content that focuses on local topics of interest. Each participant receives a kit of instructional material so that they can implement what they have learned in their teaching environments. i-STEM Institutes are held at 6 locations across the state during the last two weeks in June every summer.

Registration and other information available at the Idaho iSTEM webpage.
