The Eastman Scholar MathElites and SciencElites projects were built on a strong partnership among Eastman, East Tennessee State University, and seven school districts in Northeast Tennessee. The project seeks to address the changing and more challenging state math and science standards by increasing teacher content and pedagogical knowledge, increasing student learning, increasing the number of teachers participating in standards-based professional development, providing training on standards-based resources and materials, and increasing the number of highly-qualified mathematics and science teachers.
Led by Dr. Chiche Tai, Integrating STEM and Literacy with Computation in Elementary Education (iSLICEE) funded by the United States Department of Education's Teacher Quality Program between 10/1/2018 and 9/30/2023.
The iSLICEE is an elementary education program that supports teaching candidates to learn how to incorporate digital learning and teaching skills into the classroom as well as computational thinking and STEM techniques.
ETSU Governor’s School: Integration of Biological & Statistical Sciences. The overarching goal of the Governor’s School is to broaden the student’s appreciation and knowledge of biology and mathematics through exposure to and integration of a wide range of contemporary biological and mathematical topics. In each case, model building and data analysis will play a critical role and will be interwoven in a statistical and biological context. Students will be engaged in the scientific method via hands-on research experiences. More Information
