Transcript of STEM Education
By: Tonya Copeland
Connects Learning to the Real World
Improvement in teacher and students' attitudes and understanding in math and science
What do you know about STEM Education?
STEM programs must start in
STEM Prepares Students to Compete Globally
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
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
Imagine a world
motivated by not
what they have
to do, but what
they want to
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 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
