STEM Education
By: Tonya Copeland

Connects Learning to the Real World
Desired Outcome:
Improvement in teacher and students' attitudes and understanding in math and science

What do you know about STEM Education?
STEM programs must start in
Elementary School

STEM Prepares Students to Compete Globally
Students are
Problem Solvers
STEM is Project Based Learning
STEM Motivates Students
Students Collaborate with peers
STEM is an acronym for the fields of study in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math in real world problem-based learning
STEM Students:
Define problems
Gather evidence
Generate multiple solutions
Analyze and select a solution
Test and implement a solution
What impact does implementing STEM lessons have on a student’s attitude and achievement in the areas of mathematics and science?

Purpose of Study:
To incorporate STEM lessons that promote more positive attitudes towards math and science as well as positive academic achievement
Experiment Time:


Imagine a world
where students

are intrinsically

motivated by not

what they have

to do, but what

they want to
Think Critically
Think Creatively
Engage Students
Opposite Points of View

STEM Wastes Educational Resources
STEM Increases Alienation from Schools

STEM Encourages Student Dropouts
Why is it important for students to be exposed to STEM at K-12?
Elementary level learning lays the foundation for later success
Exposure at a young age will increase proficiency and interest in STEM subjects
Research shows that American students are performing below other countries in the fields Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.

America is no longer leading the way in any of these fields

STEM Education
STEM Education is the process of learning how things work, learning skills associated with design and inquiry, and improving students' use of technology
Guides students with effective questioning and probing techniques
Places emphasis on allowing the students to analyze and think about problems
Moves away from the traditional text-book driven plans towards plans that involve hands-on learning activities
