  • The new Resources area contains reorganized and updated collections.
  • The Publications section allows members to explore journals in both pdf and html formats, view standards, and look for Integrative STEM Education Products.

“In developing this site, we were mindful of our three most important constituencies—our members, the broader Integrative STEM Education field, and public audiences who may not yet be savvy about technological literacy,” said Steve Barbato, ITEEA Executive Director. “While the website obviously serves a very public function, it is also helping us meet internal needs by providing better information to our growing network of members and institutions around the world. This is a major step forward for ITEEA, its members, advocates of Integrative STEM Education, and those members of the general public who want to learn more.”
