Carnegie Mellon CS-STEM Network
The CS-STEM Network's mission is to certify that students studying Computer Science and Robotics have the requisite skills needed to compete in today’s evolving economy. As part of that mission, Carnegie Mellon trains and certifies teachers on the pedagogy of teaching Computer Science, Computational Thinking Practices, and STEM in their STEM Robotics courses.
What is CS-STEM?
CS-STEM (Computer Science, Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) lessons integrate 21st century skills like cooperation and collaboration, critical thinking and creativity, and information and technological literacy with applied CS-STEM.
Alongside Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy, CS-STEM Network helps promote Computer Science and STEM education for both formal and informal education settings.
CS-STEM Network Badges to Certification
CS-STEM Network Certifications certify that individuals have met introductory competencies. Using a combination of research based automated assessment tools, games, and curriculum, curriculums are at Carnegie Mellon designed to insure students and teachers reach established end of course competencies.
New in 2017, CS-STEM Network are introducing the new Badges to Certifications structure, making it easier than ever for every individual, teachers and students, to earn CS-STEM Network Badges and Certificates.
Thousands of teachers and students from the Carnegie Mellon Robotics Academy
and partner educational institutions have been certified through CS-STEM.
