Mini Internships to Expand the Math Educator Pipeline

The nationwide shortage of Math education majors has created a demand for secondary Math teachers that exceeds the current number of graduates. Research shows that “early teaching experiences are key for recruiting students” into education (Rehmeyer, 2015, p. 50). To help alleviate the shortage of STEM educators, Dordt University implemented a Mini STEM Education (Mi STEM Ed) internship to give undergraduate students a taste of STEM education. The success of the program, as well as promotion, guidelines, and logistics will be shared.
