ECM Instructors

ECM Instructors represent areas of STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics) and specialize in connecting their expertise to academic content.

They do this through our in-school Engaged Learning Experiences (ELEs), during which the classroom teacher and ECM Instructors work together to design highly engaging STEAM-based learning experiences for students. ECM Instructors visit the school for several days (five days is the average) and lead students through the learning activities with the participation and support of the classroom teacher.

Other opportunities for ECM Instructors include end-of-the-year school festival events, outreach events in the community and teaching at our annual Summer STEAM Institute®. ECM Instructors share a passion for teaching and a focus on high levels of student engagement. ECM Instructors make learning fun!
