About

At the Teaching Science program of Gettysburg College, we don't prepare teachers to be certified in "the STEM fields," per se; very few such programs actually exist. What we do try to do, however, is encourage deep knowledge of a chosen discipline (biology, chemistry, or physics), with an aim of using that knowledge to develop interdisciplinary understanding of the problems of everyday living.
