Feedback form is now closed.
Given the set of new reforms in science education, and the call to integrate engineering with elementary science, STEM learning seems to be the unanimous answer. However, the way it exists now, STEM is rather a problem, than a solution. This session draws upon research-based strategies and tools that have been developed, implemented and tested in elementary classrooms to create meaningful STEM experiences. It will focus on Community-based Engineering as a means to introduce students to the engineering design process while connecting to science and math content. It will also discuss the development and use of portable Maker Spaces as a STEM resource for elementary classrooms. Overall, the session will attend to the need to create meaningful, engaging, integrated learning experiences for elementary students.
