STEM Summit 2020
How do you Activate Learning?
Join us at the South Texas STEM Summit this week to see how we can help activate learning, collaboration and creativity in your classrooms. Attend our Engineering the Future (EtF) workshop and closely examine the Engineering Design Cycle to see how this augments a greater understanding of the relationship between science and engineering.
Can’t make it, but want to learn more? Please contact your Educational Liaison, Tracy Marmolejo at email@example.com.
Friday, February 21 – Paradise Room
1:45 – 2:45 p.m.
Let’s Look at the “E” – Engineering the Future
Let’s take a close-up look at the Boston Museum of Science’s heralded High School curricula, Engineering the Future. Cary Sneider (chairperson of the Engineering NRC Framework and for the NGSS) was the Principal Investigator. This curricula features 4 Projects to be taught during the course of a year. The four projects feature mechanical, electrical, design and civil engineering. We will take a “deep dive” into this program and do a lab testing different building materials for their tensile strength. Lots of handouts and ideas to take back to your classroom to help institute Engineering into your High School curricula. We also will examine closely the Engineering Design Cycle and see how this augments a greater understanding of the relationship between science and engineering.
