CRESE offers professional development opportunities for educators to support them in integrating STEM into their learning environments.

CRESE supports Maker Ed NCSD, a community for educators, makers, and afterschool providers interested in engaging youth in making. As part of this informal group, we help organize quarterly meetings for educators to learn, share, and discuss maker-based STEM teaching and learning. Each meeting is held at a different site in the evenings and cover a different topic.
