ITTIP has been awarded a SCHEV grant, Problem-based Interdisciplinary STEM Learning (PISTEM), to provide professional development for 30 teachers from 10 school divisions beginning in July 2014 and continuing through the 2014-2015 school year.  The grant will enable language arts, mathematics, science, CTE, and resource teachers to be part of a professional learning community throughout the school year beginning with a week-long workshop in July at Longwood University.  Teams of teachers will explore research based instructional strategies that facilitate the development of interdisciplinary problem-based STEM learning lessons and activities.  Hummingbird Robotics Kits will be used in creating PBL activities.  Teachers will also participate in four webinars about literacy and mathematics integration with STEM.  Ten school divisions chose to sign on as a partner and send teams of teachers: Bedford, Brunswick, Charlotte, Colonial Heights, Cumberland, Dinwiddie, Mecklenburg, Nottoway, Pittsylvania, Prince George.  

SCHEV grants are awarded on a competitive basis from the State Council of Higher Education of Virginia and are part of Title II, Part A: Improving Teacher Quality State Grants.
