TSIN Tennessee STEM Innovation Network

Established by an Executive Order of the Governor, the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network (the TSIN or Network) is a unique public-private collaboration between the Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) and Battelle Memorial Institute (Battelle) designed to promote and expand the teaching and learning of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education in K-12 public schools across Tennessee. Battelle was chosen as the managing partner because of its success creating the Ohio STEM Learning Network in its home state, an effort that inspired the creation of the TSIN. The TSIN is funded through Race to the Top and serves as the state’s primary vehicle for aligning and coordinating STEM education policies, practices, and partners. Tennessee is rich in STEM resources, from heavy industry and agriculture to a robust automotive sector, deep healthcare experience, logistics genius, music entrepreneurship, and internationally recognized research institutions. The goal of the TSIN is to leverage these resources – the knowledge, skill, and acumen of Tennessee’s K-12, Higher Education, Business, and Community partners – to amplify opportunities for all students.

Nissan driving local education initiatives

For more than 20 years, Nissan has helped local teachers enhance classroom lessons through a partnership with the Business Education Partnership Foundation. In the past five years, the automaker has put $275,000 into local classrooms by giving educators the chance to apply for mini-grants worth up to $500. Applications are accepted each fall and spring and are judged blindly. View External Website

Taking IT to the Next Level: Why Computer Science is Critical

Youth access and interest in computing is exploding, but despite best intentions, we are now creating generations of tool users rather than tool builders. Dr. Chris Stephenson, Executive Director of the Computer Science Teachers Association (CSTA), looks at the kinds of skills students need to truly thrive in the 21st century. Statistical evidence shows a shortage of CS workers and a continued under engagement of women and minority students. This presentation includes the systemic issues that face CS education, and new resources to address these issues. 101_Taking_IT_To_The_Next_Level.pdf
