  1. 1. STEM Powers JETS New Prospect Elementary School 2010-2011
  2. 2. STEM <ul><li>Science—Discover and describe </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A better understanding of life (WHAT is…?) </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Technology—Invent and innovate </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Improving the natural world </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Engineering—Control, modify, or design materials, processes, and systems </li></ul><ul><ul><li>What could be…? </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Mathematics—Symbolic language for representing reality </li></ul>
  3. 3. Why STEM? <ul><li>The U.S. needs 400,000 new graduates in STEM fields by 2015. </li></ul><ul><li>Careers traditionally American-led industries outside of science and technology, such as farming, health care, and finance also require a strong knowledge of STEM. </li></ul><ul><li>We need to cultivate the next generation of innovators and big thinkers. </li></ul>
  4. 4. STEM: Engineering Design Process 6. Present Results. 5. Evaluate (IF works, move to 6). 4. Create the Solution. 3. Select a Solution. 2. Generate Ideas. 1. State the Problem. Engineering Design Process
  5. 5. National Science Standards (NSA) K-8 <ul><li>Science as Inquiry </li></ul><ul><li>Physical Science </li></ul><ul><li>Life Science </li></ul><ul><li>Earth and Space Science </li></ul><ul><li>Science in Personal and Social Perspective </li></ul><ul><li>History and Nature of Science </li></ul>
  6. 6. National Technology Standards (ISTE) K-12 <ul><li>Creativity and Innovation: Use of Technology </li></ul><ul><li>Research and Information Fluency: Use of Digital Tools </li></ul><ul><li>Digital Citizenship: Use of Technology </li></ul>
  7. 7. National Engineering Standards (ASEE) K-12 <ul><li>Engineering Design </li></ul><ul><li>Communication and Teamwork </li></ul>
  8. 8. National Math Standards (NCTM) K-12 <ul><li>Numbers and Operations </li></ul><ul><li>Algebra </li></ul><ul><li>Measurement </li></ul><ul><li>Data Analysis and Probability </li></ul><ul><li>Problem Solving </li></ul><ul><li>Connections </li></ul><ul><li>Representation </li></ul>
  9. 9. What is children’s engineering? <ul><li>Children’s engineering provides students the opportunity to solve real-life problems by researching, designing, building and testing solutions. Projects can vary from something simple as creating a flower for a nursery rhyme to something as complex as designing a race car with safety features that protect a raw egg from breaking in a crash test. Just as real engineers work with specific criteria, materials and time limits, so must student engineers. </li></ul>
  10. 10. What does STEM mean for New Prospect Elementary students? <ul><li>Students will continue to study and learn through the district’s Approved Curriculum, which focuses on all state and national standards. </li></ul><ul><li>STEM lessons will be layered with the current curriculum for our district. </li></ul><ul><li>Students from across the district may choose to attend New Prospect STEM Academy when it becomes a magnet school. </li></ul>
  11. 11. 3 rd -5 th Design Challenges <ul><li>Students will show the parents or other classes how they used the Engineering Design Process. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>3 rd Grade: Famous Historical Figures </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>4 th Grade: Build a Trunk </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>5 th Grade: Build a Bridge </li></ul></ul>
  12. 12. STEM…The NEXT Steps <ul><li>For the 2011-2012 school year, New Prospect Elementary students, families, community, faculty, and staff will be engaged in utilizing the Engineering Design Process. </li></ul><ul><li>For the 2012-2013 school year, New Prospect Elementary is scheduled to open as a fully-implemented STEM Theme School. </li></ul>
