Fostering Growth Mindset Through Engineering Design

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 7


STRAND: Strategies for Creating Inclusive Science and STEM Learning Environments

Show Details

Growth mindset teaching strategies and standards-aligned engineering design challenges were tested with rural elementary students in out-of-school-time and classroom settings. Results, resources, and best practices.

TAKEAWAYS:
In this poster, growth mindset and engineering design will be explored as tools for enhancing student engagement and equity. During 2019-2021, standards-aligned engineering design challenges were tested with different elementary age groups in out-of-school-time and classroom settings (schools, afterschool programs, and 4-H summer camps). For each challenge module, students were given time to explore the topic and test materials, emphasizing the importance of prototype revision so that students viewed each design change as a step toward success. Early outcomes of the research will be shared, as well as resources and best practices for program replication.

SPEAKERS:
Suzanne McDonald (West Virginia University: Morgantown, WV), Jennifer Robertson (West Virginia University: Morgantown, WV)

Let Your Inner STEM Grow

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 25


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

You can't grow a flower without seeds, just like students can't grow their STEM identity without a growth mindset.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will learn why growth mindset is a vital aspect of the foundation of students' STEM identity.

SPEAKERS:

Evaluating Pre-Service Teachers Use of the Touch-Talk-Text Teaching Model

STRAND: Students and Sensemaking: Promoting Science and STEM Teaching Strategies That Place Equity at the Center of Learning

Show Details

Elementary preservice teachers integrate science and literacy with the Touch-Talk-Text interdisciplinary framework, allowing ALL students to access science through sensory, language, and discourse connections.

TAKEAWAYS:
Attendees will gain insight into strategies for integrating science and literacy in the elementary school day, addressing issues of decreased time and resources for elementary science learning.

SPEAKERS:
Danielle Scharen (North Carolina State University: Raleigh, NC)

My Students Are Science Teachers

Friday, July 22 • 11:50 AM - 12:50 PM

McCormick Place - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Area, Table 34


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

This session will provide examples for promoting student collaboration and acceptance in the science classroom. Students become the teacher through sharing scientific ideas and reviewing feedback.

TAKEAWAYS:
1. Using students' differences to encourage discussions of real-world problems and scientific solutions brings a sense of respect into the classroom; 2. You can incorporate students’ backgrounds into science instruction; and 3. Teaching students to be productive citizens is also a part of science learning.

SPEAKERS:
Lindsay Simmons (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC), Sarah Driggers (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC), Abbey McLean (Francis Marion University: Florence, SC)
