How many of you are K-16 teachers in STEM fields? In which STEM field(s) do you teach? Let us know quickly, as we are pursuing some exciting opportunities that might assist many of you. Write to PaulCastelin@boisestate.edu to let him know. Thanks!
We are starting a STEM program at my school this coming September to enhance the technology program. We will be including Legos robotics, circuit boards, and 3d printing along with game design and hands on STEM projects.
I am look for any ideas or lessons myself.
I am looking at applying for a STEM jug and just found this resource.http://cemast.illinoisstate.edu/educators/stem/ It head a load of interesting activities. I am in Illinois so I don't know about access but you can get some good ideas
I meant job!!! I have fat fingers.
Mark, at this time we are only trying to get an approximate count of the considerable number of K-16 teachers in our MET program that are teaching in STEM fields currently. All the best in the hunt!!
Thank you Mark for the link. I love it. There are wonderful STEM projects here that I can use in my classroom. If you find any other please let me know.
Thank you again.
Kim, what areas will you be teaching this coming Fall?
Hi Paul. We are a K through 8th Catholic Academy. I am the tech integrator for the school. We are making a Makerspace room in our school. It is a huge undertaking. I mean a massive two classroom coming into one large room. We will have Lego Walls, Dry Erase Walls. I am bringing in We Do Legos for the younger grades and snap circuit boards plus hand on STEM Projects. For the older grades we will have 3D printers, Lego Robotics and Arduino Boards learning about circuit boards. I will be teaching all this as well as video editing, stop motion animation and some game design. It is a huge undertaking and I have very little to go for lessons but I am working on it. I did take the STEM course for Robotics this past semester and loved the class. I walked away with so much knowledge.
For the fall I will be teaching grades 6-11 computer science.
