Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS) has partnered with Purdue University’s College of Education to create more STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) learning environments for emerging teachers.

The Indy STEM Teacher Residency project will connect nearly 60 new teachers, completing their master’s degree coursework, with experienced STEM teachers to provide skills training and day-to-day mentoring in IPS classrooms. Arsenal Technical High School, George Washington High School, and Henry W. Longfellow Medical/STEM Middle School 28 students will benefit from this as they prepare for further educational and career opportunities in the STEM fields.
