More about the STEM education landscape in Illinois:
- According to US News, New Trier Township High School in Winnetka, Illinois ranked 23 out of 500 on a list of best STEM high schools in the country.
- The Orpheum Children’s Science Museum used to be the historic Orpheum Theatre, and is one of the finest examples of adaptive reuse of an historic structure. The Museum runs programs, hosts events, and maintains amazingly educational exhibits year-round.
- In 2014, the Illinois Institute of Technology began offering a STEM Education Minor, a degree students can earn to complement their Science BAs in order to teach secondary mathematics and/or science. The minor was created in response to the fact that less than half of chemistry and physics teachers majored in those subjects. The same statistic is true for math teachers. IIT hopes to change those numbers.
