Why	
  STEM?	
  
What	
  IS….	
  
How	
  do	
  we	
  get	
  started?	
  
Change	
  is	
  hard!	
  
Every	
  day,	
  students	
  
travel	
  from	
  class	
  to	
  
class,	
  being	
  exposed	
  
to	
  content	
  in	
  isol...
They	
  view	
  
learning	
  as	
  
an	
  assembly	
  
line…	
  
individual	
  
packages	
  
without	
  
cohesiveness	
  
They	
  struggle	
  
with	
  seeing	
  
concepts	
  as	
  part	
  
of	
  a	
  whole	
  
package.	
  	
  	
  
Which	
  makes	
  it	
  
difficult	
  for	
  them	
  
to	
  apply	
  their	
  
learning	
  to	
  real	
  
world	
  situaDons...
Do	
  We	
  Teach	
  Skills?	
  
Skills	
  are	
  not	
  
taught….	
  	
  
they	
  are	
  
developed	
  
How	
  are	
  
skills	
  
developed?
