The HP Catalyst Academy’s network of online mini-courses for STEMx teachers is growing! Twenty new mini-courses have been selected from a pool of international applications, and the list is very exciting…


I’m particularly excited to see the HP Catalyst Academy’s first non-English mini-courses. Several will be offered in Spanish, and one is being developed for educators who speak Hindi! From mobile app design to using Geogebra to support mathematics explorations, there are MANY ways to engage students by making STEMx learning relevant and fun. By the end of the year, the HP Catalyst Academy should have 35 mini-courses of many types covering many STEMx topics. In the meantime, join the Academy and enroll in one of the current mini-courses being offered. They’re free, and they’re fun!


For the details and complete list of recipients, see the official announcement from ISTE.org and NMC.org


Congratulations to all the organizations joining the HP Catalyst Academy network, and to all the Fellows who will be designing the mini-courses!
