In January, 100Kin10, the national network for training and retaining 100,000 excellent K-12 science, technology, engineering, and math teachers by 2021, announced $1 million in funding to five recipients for Teacher Experimentation Grants. 100Kin10 invited applicants to answer the question, “How can we empower teachers to experiment with their STEM instruction, or create conditions that allow them to do so?” The MTC Network, in collaboration with The Initiative for Mathematics Learning by Inquiry (, received a grant to offer teachers in Buffalo and Rochester, N.Y., additional professional development and training. The training will focus on connecting the teachers’ MTC experiences with the incorporation of more inquiry-based learning into their classroom practices. Local leaders of the project include Jane Cushman (Buffalo State and Buffalo MTC), Keiko Dow (D’Youville College and Buffalo MTC), Ryan Gantner (St. John Fisher College and Rochester Area MTC), Yousuf George (Nazareth College and Rochester Area MTC), and eight teacher-leaders from school districts in Buffalo and Rochester.
