Science and Technology Education in the U.S.
November 5, 2015 - November 11, 2015
Cleveland is gaining national recognition for its achievements in transitioning the Cleveland Metropolitan School District into a hub for public STEM oriented schools such as the Cleveland Early College at John Hay School, John Marshall High School, and MC2 STEM High School. Coming to Cleveland to learn about the City’s success with STEM school promotion and development is a group of education professionals from Egypt, Honduras, Ireland, Kenya, South Africa, Thailand, Trinidad and Tobago, and the United Arab Emirates. They will explore the organization of the American education system, examine the best practices in classroom instruction, discuss policy initiatives and public-private partnerships that accelerate student learning in STEM subjects, and review technological innovation in science education. During their time in Cleveland, they will also see how initiatives on the state level work to support STEM education in the classroom and how primary and secondary schools work to engage girls and women in STEM.
International Visitor Leadership (IVLP) Program
Each year, over 250 professionals from around the world visit Northeast Ohio through IVLP. Sponsored by the U.S. Department of State, these visitors have been identified by U.S. embassies as emerging leaders in their fields. Over 50 Nobel Laureates and 335 current or former Chiefs of State or Heads of Government are alumni of this program.
By connecting with foreign leaders we strengthen Northeast Ohio’s commercial, cultural, and educational ties with the rest of the world. For more information, contact Katie Ferman, Program Officer, at firstname.lastname@example.org or click here. To get involved as a Citizen Diplomat, click here.
