STEMAZing Systems Thinking is embedding the Habits and tools of systems thinking into high-quality STEM lessons. From existing resources using the Habits and tools of systems thinking to new resources designed to specifically to help students make sense of the world using systems thinking, STEMAZing Systems Thinking professional development will help teachers bring these powerful learning opportunities to all our students.

STEMAZing Systems Thinking Cohorts are funded by the Arizona State University - Arizona STEM Acceleration Project. They will support 100 teachers from around the state of Arizona as they learn the Habits and tools of systems thinking and how to integrate them into 3-dimensional science instruction, technology explorations, engineering design projects, and mathematical adventures. Cohorts are located in Tucson, Yuma, Willcox, and Flagstaff.
