STEM Program Pathways
Featuring six different educational tracks so teachers can find just the right fit for your interests.
STEM: Don’t Keep Your Hands and Mind to Yourself!
In the STEM-oriented classroom, learning is a combination of “hands-on” and “minds-on” learning. How do we gain the knowledge and retain the knowledge? Using a variety of objects and manipulatives to engage hands and minds, students find they can “create” ideas and solutions to any problem!
STEM: Plugging in to Student-Centered Technology!
Using technology for teaching is different from engaging students in all kinds of technological experiences. Using technology in the classroom allows teachers to engage students in all kinds of creative and compelling technological experiences. A variety of activities and resources can be plugged into technology to create high-interest and motivating learning environments.
STEM: “E” is for Engineering!
What does “engineering” mean and look like in my classroom? “E” is for Engineering and it’s all about solving real world problems. The process to solve the problem is ENGINEERING! What are the steps to solve the problem and how can you apply them in your classroom today?
STEM: Pick A Subject, Any Subject!
Many people think that STEM is just for math and science people, but it’s for EVERYONE---language arts, social studies, music, art, etc. Cross-curricular units integrating STEM can apply to any subject and any grade.
STEM: Career and Tech Ed? STEM is For You!
Preparing students for a wide-range of highly skilled and demanding careers, Career and Technical Education engages students with academics in rigorous and relevant pathways, leading to certification and degrees. Many times we don’t think of these pathways as STEM, but STEM is highly integrated into the plethora of careers involved in the 16 career pathways!
STEM: It’s for PreK-5th Grade, Too!
Who says STEM doesn’t start until the middle school grades? Integrated science, technology, engineering and math into elementary curricula is alive and well in preschool and other elementary grades today. Integrated thematic units create a prime environment for STEM topics and ideas.
