Global Program

Website world

In 2018, NCSSS launched a new global program. The program’s core focus is on people: the students, the teachers and the administrators, and on helping them learn, collaborate and innovate together.

The four key areas of focus for the program are:

  • Exchanging information and program ideas.
  • Providing professional development and networking opportunities for educators.
  • Creating learning experiences for students.
  • Sharing policy developments on STEM education from around the world.

We are seeking schools that wish join the program to share, learn and collaborate with this ground-breaking group of global schools. We want schools that want to develop a “global mindset,” to let their teachers and students connect with and learn with others around the world.

This is not a “finished product.” We need schools that are interested in thinking outside the box and that want the opportunity to shape the program to ensure it offers genuine value to its students, teachers and administrators.

Is your school interested in developing a more global mindset and collaborating with schools around the world?
