Transcript of Zero to STEM in 3 years

What is Working
Let it work!!!!!
So how do you tweak to STEM?
Foster Partnerships

Add high level labs at all levels

Have kids research and present

Provide support with $$

Let Lead Horses Run
Why Not PLTW Biology?
1. We had home grown success, let it grow....it costs less
2. Small schools cannot do it all elective wise, too many options will kill programs
3. College readiness still requires students to be ready in core science areas.
Let the students Choose
For 2011-12 we added PLTW Engineering
For 2012-13 we added Video Game Programming
Zero to STEM in 3 years
Step #1 Assess
Evaluate your existing programs, what is working, what needs tweaks, what needs overhauled.
Arrived at LHS Fall of 2011
Lakeside High School
500 students, Athletic Level "A", 28%FRL

Focus on Science - Math - CTE
At LHS our Math scores were on the rise,
the department had been through changes
-curriculum
-standards
-flow

Keep it working and enhance
How - Hire when possible and be picky
Enhance - provide PD time together
Reward - give them resources
What needs tweaks?
Science
-Great teachers, teaching well
- Full slate of offerings and
STEM opportunities
Biotechnology
1 section, 18-26 kids, application science,
partnerships, research, presentation, CTE,
articulated, involve community
Anatomy and Physiology
2 sections, 40-60 kids, application science,
filed trips, guest speaker with each unit,
connecting with professionals
Science Summary - Tweaked Biotech, enhanced A&P, added AP Biology, strongly encourage
chemistry for all, added technology and labs to
9th and 10th science classes
Total Re-haul
Courses Offered in 2011:
3 sections of Beginning Woods/Cabinetry/furniture, Engineering 1&2, Prostart, Sewing, Ind. Living, Web Design, Photoshop, Flash, marketing, accounting, and 5-6 sections of info processing
Courses Offered in 2014:
1 sections of Beginning Woods/Adv Woods, Marketing, Journalism/social media, Entrepreneurship, Photoshop, 2 sections of Info Processing, Game Programming 1&2, Mobile App Programming, PLTW IED, POE, CIM, and Capstone
CTE
What is your class relic?
sacred cow?
Student driven scheduling and master schedule
YOUR SCHEDULE IS HOW YOU
DELIVER YOUR MISSION!!!!
Teachers
How do you deal with current teaching staff -
qualified?
Training?
Hire?
WHY STEM?
MONEY and SUPPORT
-Where is your school board on STEM?
-Arts
-Other Depts
-Equal vs. Equitable
-Grants

Engineering
Robotics
What do you have that just isn't relevent?
Not Viable?
Why is it still there?
