Presentation: “Observations on STEM Education in Latin America”

Humanities and Social Sciences, Room 126

Latin American Studies

Chadd McCloane“A teacher opens a window into your soul every time s/he teaches.” 

This quote works both ways, because good teachers open their hearts, too. Within every classroom dwell individual lives and local cultures just waiting to be discovered. Dr. Chadd McGlone founded the nonprofit Teachers2Teachers to unite US teachers with their counterparts around the world. Focusing on STEM, the exchange of knowledge and cultures creates opportunities not only to foster global citizenship among students but also to change hearts and minds. Dr. McGlone will open a window into the communities in Latin America where he has worked, sharing how T2T is changing STEM education so that today’s young minds are ready for tomorrow’s challenges. Because education knows no borders.
