Who We Are
The David F. Robitaille International STEM Education Network is committed to research and community engagement for innovative, connected, holistic, and responsive ways of teaching and learning mathematics, science, and technology in education.
Our STEM research and projects reach urban and international contexts, across age levels from early childhood to adults and parents, involving in-school and out-of-school settings, and collaborating with historically under-representative communities such as Indigenous and rural communities.
Our Virtual Family Math Fair:
Thank you to all who attended and volunteered at our first Virtual Family Math Fair on Saturday Feb 20 2021.
Over 300 families registered with 500 children/youth participating from across North America in fun and curious math activities for all.
Family Participant Comments:
“We had a great time! I had only intended to try a couple of the workshops but my daughter insisted that we did more.”
“We liked learning new games that we can play again at home and share with our other family members. It was nice to have a relaxed atmosphere where others had their videos on and had the freedom to unmute and participate. I could tell that this environment engaged my daughter.”
“I thought it was very well thought out and I love the global participation (presenters and participants)“
