STEM: Science-Technology-Engineering-Math

We were pleased to have Glenn Gee and Fred Khavari representing ASQ 1408 at the Robotics Day at GCTC in Shawnee:
On Thursday, November 8, 2012, 450+ middle school students from 23 school districts came to Gordon Cooper Technology Center to take part in STEM Day, formerly called Engineering Day. Each student participated in 2 of 18 different STEM workshops relating to various career opportunities in STEM fields. The workshops were led by STEM professionals from area industries. We are very grateful to all of the engineers, scientists, and health care professionals who graciously volunteered their time and expertise to the students in our region. The teachers that accompanied their students were given the opportunity to participate in the workshops as well and collaborate with the STEM professionals and other teachers from around our region. On behalf of Gordon Cooper Technology Center, I would like to thank all the teachers who brought their students to this important day. All the students were very well-behaved and engaged in the workshops. I look forward to seeing many of you and your students again as future STEM opportunities arise.

Engineering Resources for All Grade Levels

And all Subjects!

The above link will take you straight to the lesson search page. The engineering lessons are arranged by age and all come with a pdf file to download. The STEM active-ties are not limited to use in math or science classes, but can easily be used in social studies, art, English, and other subject areas. Please share this link with others in your building that would like to incorporate more STEM activities in their lessons.

For example, suggest to your social studies teacher the lesson on Assembly Lines:
Students will design a toy “color brick” and determine how to mass produce them by creating the most efficient assembly line possible. This study of assembly lines effectively demonstrates the engineering design process in real-world problem-solving industry settings. All in all, a great re-source!

The Teaching Channel

Every opportunity I have to speak to teachers, I always includes something from the Teaching Channel. If you haven’t had a chance to explore this site, please take time during the holidays to do so. I mention this because I just finished viewing a 14 minute video titled “Barbie Bungee Jump” and was absolutely amazed!
I then thought, “How can I get my hands on a class set of Barbies?” With children of my own, it seems every year after Christmas, we have a surplus of toys that they have outgrown. If this is the case at your house as well, before tossing them in a box for a future garage sale, see if there is anything that might be used in an engineering lesson!
NSTA has two books in their Science Store that might be useful, “Teaching Physics With Toys” by Taylor, Poth and Portman and “Teaching Chemistry With Toys” by Sarquis, Sarquis and Williams. Not to mention the multitude of ideas that are available from a simple Google search. Using toys to teach STEM concepts provides opportunities for student engagement and, to quote Mr. Roda in the teaching channel video, “brings the math to life.”
