What are STEM teacher externs?

Every year, the Greater Memphis Chamber’s STEM Teacher Externship Program embeds teachers in businesses to promote a greater understanding of high-demand skills and jobs available in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM).

BUILD RELATIONSHIPS

Building stronger bridges between the classroom and the workplace is essential to prepare students for the STEM jobs of the future.

MAKE AN IMPACT

Teachers who participate in the externships receive valuable supplies to help their students build a foundation in STEM learning.

SHAPE THE FUTURE

Teachers teach what they know. Externships give them the knowledge they need to guide students to fulfilling careers in STEM.
