STEM education has become a major focus for education reform, instructional implementation, and funding initiatives across K-12 learning environments. However, there are a lack of resources that combine research and teacher experience surrounding STEM implementation in order to better understand the current landscape of STEM education in the urban K-12 environment.

K-12 STEM Education in Urban Learning Environments provides emerging research on the challenges and barriers of STEM education in urban environments and how to move forward in overcoming these challenges and barriers to provide equitable education for all K-12 students. Featuring coverage on a broad range of topics such as teacher preparation, programming, gender and racial barriers, and more, this publication is ideally designed for teachers, faculty, administrators, policymakers, researchers, and scholars.
