North Dakota Partnership Brings STEM Education to Rural Schools

Drake Anamoose High School North Dakota NDCDE - Creative Learning Systems - STEAM EducationThe North Dakota Center for Distance Education (NDCDE) is partnering with Creative Learning Systems(CLS) to bring STEM centers and STEAM programs into rural schools. Over the last two years CLS and NDCDE have worked together to launch twelve programs in rural North Dakota schools. Plans for similar STEM programs in other ND schools are currently in development. These programs bring next-generation STEM education to students. As a result, students all over North Dakota have the opportunity to explore leading-edge technologies while building critical 21st century skills.

Drake-Anamoose School in Drake, ND is one such K-12 school. Superintendent Steve Heim said that the SmartLab program aligns perfectly with the North Dakota Innovative Education Initiative launched by Governor Doug Burgum. "He wants creative thinking he wants problem solving, he wants us to teach outside of the box," said Heim.
