Getting started with the Florida STEM TIPS web site is a breeze when you know a little about the areas you can visit while you’re here.
The University of Florida and the Florida Department of Education are establishing a teacher induction support system with partner school districts that will serve as a model statewide. The activities included in this system of support for new science and math teachers will include online mentoring, professional development and networking opportunities with their peers. Check here for STEM-focused webinars, valuable resources for new teachers, and tools for collaborating and sharing everything from lesson plans and lessons learned to digital media.About STEM TIPS (PDF) Take a video tour
