Connecting STEL to STEM Integration: How it Looks in the Classroom!!

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Designing the solution that solves a real-world problem requires the application of knowledge and skills from multiple disciplines, as in STEM practices. Through the exploration of STEL and the EDP, students learn how to evaluate their design solutions based on constraints and criteria.

TAKEAWAYS:
Educators learn how to use performance tasks to measure students’ application of the knowledge and to assess individual student performance.

SPEAKERS:
Denise Clarke-Mayers (East Orange STEM Academy: East Orange, NJ)

A Community-Based Approach: Authentically Connecting Students to Career Pathways

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle

STEM Partnership Toolkit

STRAND: Research to Practice

Show Details

We share an approach used to recruit and train STEM professionals in a rural community to engage middle school youth using programmable environmental sensors and 3D printing technology to design solutions to real-world problems. The result? Authentic connections to STEM careers in their community.

TAKEAWAYS:
Learn how a research team developed and implemented a model to increase middle school students’ interest in STEM careers through integration of STEM curricula using programmable sensors and 3D printing technology, STEM mentors from local community partnerships, and career focused activities.

SPEAKERS:
Melissa Rummel (UCAR Center for Science Education: Boulder, CO)

How to STEMify your science labs

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

Exposure to STEM in a traditional science classroom is a gateway for students to start thinking about pursuing STEM fields. The session will discuss how to take a traditional inquiry lab done in the science classroom and up the rigor and interaction by STEMifying them. Science labs already have the

TAKEAWAYS:
Different strategies to incorporate technology, engineering and math into a science lesson to stemify the lesson.

Teaching Science to Diverse Learners.ppt
Using Technology to Enhance Elementary Science Teaching.pptx

STRAND: Technology and Media

Show Details

There are many different forms of technology that can be used to enhance your science teaching. This poster presentation provides information and handouts for using technology with science activities for 4th and 5th grade science lessons.

TAKEAWAYS:
Engaging elementary students in science activities using technology is very motivating. A variety of tools are illustrated that can be used to engage elementary students as learn science.

SPEAKERS:
Marianne Phillips (Texas A&M University-San Antonio: San Antonio, TX)

Dog Mode Design Challenge

Friday, March 24 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: No Strand

Show Details

Introducing students to real-world engineering problems is a key component to engaging them in the science classroom. In this project, students solve the problem of saving pets from a hot car. Many students are aware of this issue and would have many ideas on how this could be achieved. This projects gives them the tools to help solve such a problem by building a model and finding a solution. Participants in this session will get to build the model themselves to see how information from sensors (input) can determine what should be done (output) through simple lines of code. No coding or engineering experience is needed, just imagination and logical thinking. Projects like these can expose students to STEM Careers. The exposure to coding and engineering design can also get them interested in doing more in the STEM field.

TAKEAWAYS:
Solve a real-world problem with coding and engineering design - no prior experience needed.

Technology tools to keep as we leave the pandemic behind

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Teaching Strategies and Classroom Practice

Show Details

The poster will highlight and discuss some of the valuable technology resources that played a key role in allowing teachers to provide students with an equitable learning experience during the pandemic and how they can continue to be utilized as we return to the post pandemic classroom.

TAKEAWAYS:
The poster will discuss strategies using tools such as Classkick, Gimkit, Blooket, and Edpuzzle to differentiate instruction in the classroom while encouraging persistence and achievement in students.

SPEAKERS:
Selene Verhofstad (Dobie High School: Houston, TX)

All Students Can Do STEM: STEM-ulating Projects for Clubs, Camps, and Classrooms

Saturday, March 25 • 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Georgia World Congress Center - Exhibit Hall, Poster Session Aisle


STRAND: Equity and Justice

Show Details

These STEM projects can be completed in a science classroom, in a club or a camp with students in grades 6-12. This session will provide examples of how 2 teachers completed these projects both in and out of classroom instruction time. Come learn with us!

TAKEAWAYS:
STEM projects for any student to have success
