Arizona STEM School Community of Practice

Mendoza has participated and partnered with the AZ. STEM Community of Practice for the past three years to build our STEM education program at Mendoza.  Arizona SciTech, the state’s leading innovator and proponent of STEM education provides a joint initiative between hi-tech businesses, community members, educators, student, and parents to create the AZ. STEM School Community of Practice.  Through this process our Mendoza team has participated in professional development with Intel, the Arizona Science Center, and the Maricopa Education Service Agency to design innovative lessons and opportunities for students.  Since we started in the first cohort of school we have collaborated with 57 forward thinking, creative schools that are dedicated to sharing best practices and finding solutions to educate our students in the field of STEM and prepare them for the high tech needs for the future.
