Wisconsin STEM Education : STEM Education Programs Continuum

Blogger and Wisconsin educator, Kevin Anderson, says "I decided I"d frame a continuum of STEM programs: "Beginning" - programs that have less potential to meet the goals I noted in my last post and are often the first steps that schools and districts take "Developing" - programs that begin to have potential, but often don't bring people and resources together well enough"Realizing" - programs that have the potential to realize a true vision of STEMNow, I want to put out a disclaimer here. I'm not saying your STEM program is terrible if you're doing the #1 type activities I mention below. These ideas can be good starting points. I'm arguing that you may not have the impact you hope for without moving further on this continuum." His discussion continues with examples, embedded links to articles that support his assertions, and more about what he thinks STEM should look like.
