Einstein Fellows

Best Practices in STEM Education – With assistance from Terrie Rust & Remy Dou


Edited By Tim Spuck, Leigh Jenkins, Terrie Rust and Remy Dou

Science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education is seen by leaders from across the globe as key to economic success and prosperity. Einstein Fellows attempts to improve the state of STEM education, not only here in the United States, but internationally as well. As the body of STEM-learning research grows, this volume provides the unique perspective of nationally recognized educators who have spent, collectively, more than 400,000 hours at the interface between teaching and learning. Each chapter communicates how its author has implemented a specific STEM practice in the classroom and how the practice might be modified for use in other classrooms, schools, and learning environments. Readers of Einstein Fellows: Best Practices in STEM Education will gain powerful insight about what really works when it comes to teaching and learning STEM. This publication will serve as an excellent resource for use in any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics teaching methods course; no professional education library K through college, should be without a copy.

Advance Praise for Einstein Fellows


“Prior to Congress, I spent over 20 years as an educator; serving as a science teacher, school board member, principal, and education researcher. Einstein Fellows: Best Practices in STEM Education is an outstanding publication, featuring some of the best STEM educators in the nation, and insights and guidance on what really works to improve learning in and out of the classroom. Broad implementation of these best practices has the potential to improve STEM education both here in the United States and across the globe. I urge teachers, school administrators, my colleagues in Congress, and education leaders across the nation to give it [a] read; you won’t be disappointed.”

—U.S. Congressman Mike Honda, California’s 17th District

“In a community where we struggle to define ‘STEM,’ this book provides a clear vision with tangible exemplars to help define the role of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in our nation’s education system. Einstein Fellows provides research paired with practical programming and resources in a groundbreaking way that speaks to practitioners, administrators, researchers, and policymakers. This book is STEM for the 21st century.”

—Sarah Young, K–12 Science Specialist, Utah State Office of Education
