At Gettysburg College, in the Teaching Science programme, we don't prepare teachers to be certified in "the STEM fields," per se; very few such programs actually exist. 


The whole notion of STEM education emerged from the sense that the fields it represents are too often taught (and learned) in isolation, but we also recognize that disciplinary understanding is what sows the seed of interdisciplinary work. 


  • Coursework offered in the Teaching Science degree at Gettysburg College leading toward certification in one of the science fields encourages just this kind of integrated thinking: we want our teacher candidates to see the implications of applying their knowledge of biology, chemistry, or physics to the practical problems posed by technological innovation and to the engineering challenges brought on by modern life—whatever form they take.
