Mexican STEM teachers learn new teaching techniques in Mexicali, Baja California

In partnership with the U.S. Consulate in Tijuana, the Institute of the Americas, an NGO based at the University of California in San Diego, sponsored a Professional Workshop for Teachers of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) at CETYS University in Mexicali, Baja California.

The five-day workshop for high school teachers, focused on robotics, programming, and coding, taught Mexican instructors innovative skills to increase their professional development and creativity, and also focused on low-resource methods to teach these key concepts.

The training was offered to a total of 23 teachers from the Mexican states of Baja California, Sonora, Sinaloa, Tamaulipas and Nuevo León. This is the first STEM workshop offered by the Institute of the Americas outside its headquarters in California.
