Through my work in legislative advocacy I first learned of Oklahoma's legislation to create STEM education districts. I led the formation and then was elected president. (I'm not a STEM person). Oklahoma has a robust planning process for districts; however, it's up to volunteers in our collaboration membership to make this work. I've found great enthusiasm in K-12 teachers for professional development — including in areas of leadership that are new to many — and participating in our cohort process. Teachers are the linchpin to educating students and convincing their parents that STEM careers are worthwhile. Our emphasis is on helping teachers take their students through the five stages from exposure to mastery, and how this applies in the real world.
