Practical Education Network (PEN) builds the capacity of West African STEM teachers to employ experiential pedagogies in their classrooms. PEN trains teachers to use low-cost, locally-available materials to form hands-on STEM activities. Over the last 2.5 years, PEN has impacted nearly 2,500 teachers around Ghana and trained 100 local-level trainers to step-down the content. For this project, PEN is asking the Capstone team to conduct a two-fold project. First, the Capstone team will conduct a formative assessment of PEN’s impact, utilizing the M&E framework developed by an MPA-DP student intern this summer. Second, using the assessment conducted, they should develop a strategy for creating a social change that boosts the uptake of hands-on science teaching among STEM educators.
