TAF Academy is a public middle and high school co-managed by a non-profit (TAF) and a school district. Through Teacher/Scientist Partnerships (TSP), STEM professionals (e.g., computer programmers and engineers) and TAF Academy teachers collaborate. STEM professionals work with teachers on improving teachers’ understanding of real-world STEM applications; TSP also puts STEM professionals in direct contact with students—they teach classes in person (stuff like computer programming and project management), communicate with students via online forums and Skype, and evaluate student work.
