We're excited to begin working with you to deliver interest-driven STEAM education to your students. By participating in FUSE, students will build on their 21st-century skill set while developing new interests in STEAM-related fields. This year’s FUSE training took place over the course of 2 days in a live webinar format.
The following 4 video recordings cover everything you need to know to start facilitating your FUSE studio. Beneath each video is a description of what it covers as well as some useful links related to those topics.
