Today, President Obama and the White House continued to publicly encourage students to pursue interests and careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) with the ‘Educate to Innovate‘ campaign. This mission is a core principal of the PBS mission and KLRU wants to ensure our community is aware of how we support this initiative with innovative, free resources for teachers, kids and parents.
KLRU and PBS offer opportunities to explore new ideas related to STEM learning through television and online content. On-line broadband access and digital media are dramatically changing the opportunities available to the nation’s educators improving STEM education. Through many of our award-winning STEM-related television programs – Nova, Nature, Cyberchase, Curious George and, most recently, Sid the Science Kid – public media continues to play its role as an innovator in digital content and professional development.
Teachers can learn more about how you can access STEM content for your teachers and students by visiting the PBS Teachers STEM Resource Center and use Science-related streaming video on PBS. Additional high-quality, resources for teachers in Austin and across Texas include:
- PBS TeacherLine of Texas, a premier provider of online professional development.
- Sesame Street’s Early STEM Literacy Initiative, “Math is Everywhere” programs.
