5 Ways To Support Minority STEM Students | Popular Science

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Ahmed Mohamed's arrest for bringing his clock project to MacArthur High School in Texas has sparked public outrage (and the hashtag #IStandWithAhmed). And although police eventually released the 14-year-old, there is now a serious discussion around the fact that, like Ahmed and Kiera Wilmot, many students from underrepresented backgrounds may have a hard time finding support for their interests in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM).
The STEM workforce is no more diverse than it was 14 years ago, and it may be because smart kids with STEM interests can only go as far as their resources and support allow them. Some schools simply aren’t equipped to give these youngsters the skills they need for their projects.

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts | SmartPlanet

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.

To innovate, scientists and engineers find inspiration in the arts

davidconover's curator insight, May 6, 2013 10:20 AM

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.”

Using Story in Design, Innovation, Problem Solving

Using Story in Design, Innovation, Problem Solving | STEM Connections | Scoop.it
How narrative intelligence can help everyone design solutions and generate useful data.

 

Karen Dietz's insight:

I really like how this author, Denise Withers, talks about how our narrative intelligence (our knowledge of story structure, and our story thinking ways) can be applied in business to solve problems, help decision making, and be used as another design process to improve innovation.

 

Love it, love it. These points apply to any business or nonprofit. Withers shares anecdotes to make her points, and offers great advice.

 

As an aside -- my friend and story colleague Madelyn Blair and I were just talking the other day about narrative intelligence and a book she'd like to write about it with another story colleague Denise Lee. Get busy Madelyn and Denise! We need that book :))

I am becoming a HUGE advocate of designing experiences in conjunction with contextual storytelling!

story design process can offer an intuitive planning framework that makes it easier for us to wrangle and resolve complex challenges.
