Changing Mindsets: STEM Is NOT Content Areas in Isolation - @wfryer

Changing Mindsets: STEM Is NOT Content Areas in Isolation - @wfryer | Design Thinking | Scoop.it
True STEM classes, which are NOT “regular” science or math classes in which teachers have been asked or have chosen to offer STEM-focused lessons to students, are very rare today in most schools. I was blessed the past two years to teach STEM to 4th and 5th grade students as a separate “specials class” where STEM was treated like PE, Music and Art. All students went to STEM class. It wasn’t reserved just for the GE/Gifted Education kids. Everyone went to STEM and participated, including many “special friends” who were not mainstreamed for other classes during the day. They went to STEM class, however, because they could succeed in collaborative environments which emphasized hands-on learning.

MakeHers: Engaging Girls and Women in Technology - YouTube

Intel’s “MakeHers: Engaging Girls and Women in Technology through Making, Creating and Inventing” report was created in consultation with experts including the Girl Scouts and Maker Education. It is Intel’s latest effort to support the maker community and increase access to and interest in computer science and engineering, especially among girls and women. The report indicates that girls and women involved with making, designing and creating things with electronic tools may build stronger interest and skills in computer science and engineering. Read the full report at www.intel.com/girlsintech.
