Improving STEM Education in Indonesia

TC participates in an ongoing project with the Columbia Center for Environment, Economy, and Society (CEES) and the Institute Pertanian Bogor in Indonesia to conduct a USAID-funded project to improve the teaching of STEM in Indonesian high schools.  The project, which was launched in 2012 and focuses on building capacity at teacher training colleges and three schools that will serve as models in Indonesia, was designed to unfold in phases over three years.  In phase one, TC hosted key Indonesian stakeholders for a two-week New York study tour focused on classroom-based presentations, workshops, panels, school visits, and meetings with relevant education officials.  In November 2013, TC faculty successfully completed phase two of our STEM project in Indonesia, traveling to Indonesia to lead a workshop for the model school science teachers, together with science teacher trainers from area teachers colleges.  Phase three, scheduled to conclude in November 2014, will involve following up with stakeholders on continued implementation and program scale-up.
