Office of STEM Education Partnerships
STEM Student Research Facilitation Course



The Office of STEM Education Partnerships (OSEP) at Northwestern University is offering a professional development opportunity for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) teachers to develop or advance a program that facilitates their own students’ research.

Through a generous grant from Motorola Solutions, teachers participate in an 11-week course and learn about models and tools for implementing student research in their school district, advance planning efforts to facilitate student research opportunities, and share best practices with experienced area teachers and STEM leaders.
Please contact with any questions.
