Views from a number of school leaders in US/UK/France/Russia/ Netherlands attending BLC (Superintendents, school principals, STEM teachers, GTEC project leaders and GTEC Ambassadors from the US, Russia, UK, France, Netherlands). A discussion of the challenges from the variety perspectives of educators from different educational systems (re: implementing Global STEM education programs) and about how we can realistically develop collaborative programs across geographies and cultures.  While Global collaboration in STEM sounds like the perfect answer to developing student and teacher skills, this is still not so easy to implement in our schools (in US and around the world). Participants will learn more about different challenges in the various educational systems and how develop appropriate collaborative programs for different schools and countries. The legendary Dr. Charlie Pellerin (NASA Hubble Telescope) (and a GTEC Advisor) will be joining us via Skype & speak about NASA 4D system and our collaborative efforts bringing it to the educators around the world with GTEC team. GTEC team members and teachers & students from global school partners will be co-presenting these sessions.
