KacKIDemia ~ New Learning Times

KacKIDemia ~ New Learning Times | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

by Kate Meersschaert

 

HacKIDemia is a mobile invention lab that enables future changemakers to access and create a hands-on STEAM education that will enable them to solve specific challenges by developing and testing creative solutions and physical artifacts. (from the Hackidemia site)

 

Curiosity, Empathy and Play

"With a focus on fostering "curiosity, empathy and play" and combining science, technology, storytelling and art HacKIDemia is helping the next generation of "autonomous" thinkers discover the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Fine Arts and Math) fields. Through the group's mobile "maker" workshops, toolkits, mentor training and support of local grassroots entrepreneurship efforts, HacKIDemia is going above and beyond what most "maker" programs offer by attempting to engage a wide range of stakeholders in not only the traditional STEM subjects, but also the fine arts and crafts. HacKIDemia is also uniquely focused on helping young children to discover STEAM fields ranging from 3D printing, micro-electronics, programming, robotics, crafting, biotech and even physics."

Technological Thoughts - WHAT STEM LACKS

Technological Thoughts - WHAT STEM LACKS | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) This fantastic combination of courses is suppose to be the penultimate combination for student knowledge and success. This is supposed to make students ready for future careers and achievement in life. This sounds so promising and I mean who doesn't want all of their students to succeed. Yet STEM in education lacks some critical components. I was at METC 2016 and listened to a speaker who nailed the problem with STEM right on the head. To paraphrase what he said, Trust me there is no lack of jobs in the STEM field, their is a lack of competency and understanding.

Watching video from the Apollo space programme one can’t help but notice
how things have changed since those days in the early 1970s. Banks of small
round rectangular screens, dot matrix printers, a myriad of switches and
dials each with a specific task to perform and a design aesthetic that says
functionality in mild mannered green. Beside the technology are the men who
made the space programme possible. Men in shirts with narrow ties, sensible
hair styles and the obligatory cigar. What i

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet | STEM Connections | Scoop.it

In the innovation field, a rebirth of Renaissance thinking is brewing. Scientists and engineers are engaging with the arts to think creatively.

 

The idea is also currently reflected in the debates on re-vamping the U.S. educational system to boost the innovation skills of U.S. students. Media artist John Maeda, president of the Rhode Island School of Design, has spoken at numerous events — including before Congress — about the value of incorporating the arts to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) educational initiatives, turning STEM to “STEAM,” as Maeda has said.

The Arts is the mixing bowl for science, technology, engineering and math.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, May 6, 2013 8:20 PM

Some disciplines have evolved to their own death. Engineering has evolved logically, but not necessarily culturally,” Silver of Intel and Makey Makey, who was trained as an electrical engineer, told me at PopTech. “Creativity isn’t part of that any more. So we look to where it is; we’re desperate for it. We look to art. And it’s wonderful, because it’s there.”
