Participating States and Affiliated DoD Labs

nCASE works closely with DoD laboratories across the nation to integrate their scientists and engineers (S&Es) into the training process. nCASE provides instruction on 21st-century learning tools and strategies for teachers and S&Es so that the two can work collaboratively within school systems located in proximity to DoD labs. nCASE's unique training strategy teams the educator and the STEM professional so that they benefit from one another's perspectives, experiences and areas of expertise. In particular, the S&Es bring the "real-world" point-of-view to the classroom.
