Cincinnati Engineering Enhanced Math and Science Program (CEEMS) MSP

The Cincinnati Engineering Enhanced Mathematics and Science Program (CEEMS), which was led by the University of Cincinnati, in partnership with 14 school districts, has recently concluded our seven year grant period.  The CEEMS program was created to meet the growing need for engineering educated teachers who were equipped to provide learners with opportunities to achieve the revised Ohio New Learning Standards and the NGSS.  The CEEMS program used engineering as a concept to teach math and science and to coach teachers as they develop units that provide real world applications with connections to engineering.  During the life of the CEEMS program over 93 teachers participated in the Summer Institute for Teacher (SIT) and/or the full two-year CEEMS program.  The collection of math and science units developed by the CEEMS teachers, can be found by clicking on the  “Instructional Units” tab to the right.  Although the program has concluded, several sustainability programs have been developed.  If you are interested in learning more about Challenge Based Learning(CBL), the Engineering Design Process (EDP) and how you can develop units including these two pedagogies, please head to the STEMucation Academy webpage at www.stemucationacademy.com. STEMucation Academy provides an opportunity to learn about CBL-EDP, develop a unit that adheres to the standards you are required to meet, and broaden your ability to engage your students.  The STEMucation Academy training can be completed via an online course or in-person workshops.
