      Hi Anthony, 

      Thanks for asking! STEM Lesson Guideposts is focused primarily on middle grades, so most of the examples and activities will be most closely aligned with those grade levels. A lot of the strategies and principles, however, are adaptable up into high school. If you'd like to check out the sample chapter to see if it will fit your needs, that can be found here: http://samplechapters.heinemann.com/stem-lesson-guideposts

      Heinemann doesn't currently have any STEM books geared specifically toward high school.

    My school was recently granted a STEM initiative but unfortunately, resources are limited. I would like to implant PBL and bring about awareness to students about STEM opportunities in regards to jobs and careers.  Do you also offer professional development for teachers who are new to STEM?
