A successful STEM education provides students with
science, math, engineering and technology

in sequences that build upon
each other and can be used with

real-world applications.
STEM Education
creates critical thinkers
, increases science literacy, and enables the next generation of
innovators
.
CULTIVATING
STEM
EDUCATION
WHAT

IS
STEM
?
Bring relevance to the classroom

by demonstrating

how math and science
is used
everyday,
in every

subject and
every career.
MATH BY DESIGN

ON YOUR OWN: A STEM PROJECT
Students become virtual junior architects of two interactive environments, Flossville Town Park and Windjammer Environmental Center to build a skateboard ramp, cover a picnic area, dig out a pond and more. As students work their way through mind-boosting challenges, they use critical thinking and problem solving skills to increase their knowledge of geometry and measurement concepts

Performance Tasks

Performance Tasks are an
alternative assessment
that create a
project-based
environment
. Students are tasked with
solving a situation
using a multi-disciplinary approach and producing end products that demonstrate his or her knowledge or skills.


SIMULATIONS

Defined STEM
offers Interactive, virtual-lab "simulations", supported by activities and online lesson plans. These labs are not games, instead they are
in-depth interactives

that provide an area where
students can apply their skills and knowledge in a lab like environment
and
learn through trial and error.
The Design process of Baseball Bat Technology
Using Geometry and Algebra
in Backpack design
Make the math connection with four interactive online learning adventures for middle school classrooms. Students will enjoy these brain-boosting explorations that use digital media in innovative and creative ways. Virtual environments, simulations, videos and interactive math activities challenge and motivate students to actively engage in learning.
o Define the problem
o Gather pertinent information
o Generate multiple solutions
o Analyze and select a solution
o Test and implement the solution

The ultimate goal of
STEM
is to
grow the proficiency levels
of students and provide them with an
understanding of how those skills can be applied across subjects and eventually careers.
As students work their way through
mind-boosting challenges,
they use
critical thinking
and problem solving
skills to increase their knowledge of
geometry
and
measurement

concepts.
