  Abstract: A central advantage of education in Math, Science and Technology is that the core science and its essential rules and models stay the same when educators and students travel from one country to another. This predestines STEM Education for both exchange programmes for teacher training students, and cross-cultural studies in language and the social sciences. Currently, we want to design a U.S.-German exchange programme for STEM teacher preparation courses that implements a network of universities and their cooperating schools. Goals are to make STEM education a more attractive field of work, balance the supply and demand of qualified STEM teachers, and foster international research in the PER community. Students and teachers should be encouraged to study or work in the field of STEM education in both countries, thus opening paths to international careers in STEM teaching. The Keynote therefore compares National Science Education Standards of both countries.
