In addition to sharing published blog posts and the Noyce Scholarship data dashboard, we will share some of our preliminary research findings and we will also talk about each Noyce program individually, and how we work together collectively. Of course, we will also discuss lessons learned and other challenges that we faced along the way. This session will be beneficial to all Noyce project PIs/co-PIs and school and district administrators.

This workshop is consisting of two segments. First segments will be our presentation of our preliminary finding on the overall STEM workforce development. Second segment will consist of panel discussion and a highly interactive session where we provide food for thoughts and get audience involved in discussing the best way to examine the legacy of the Noyce Scholarship and how scholarships provided by the Noyce Teacher Scholarship Program will help to alleviate STEM teacher shortages. In addition, panelist will provide insights about how to create partnerships between local school districts and higher education institutions. This project involves three core research institutions (Texas State University, Florida Atlantic University, and The Brookings Institution) and four collaborating institutions with Noyce programs (Texas State University, University of Texas at Arlington, University of West Florida, and Florida International University). Using local and national databases, the project team will present initial findings on the supply of STEM teachers in the school districts they serve. The project seeks to raise awareness of challenges specific to STEM teachers in high-need settings, generate evidence-based policy solutions, and promote a better understanding of how Noyce projects influence the STEM teacher workforce.
