Transcript

  • 1. Developing STEM competencies through Inquiry Based Learning
  • 2. 4H Power of Wind Project 3M Provided a Grant for a Multi State Power of Wind Project Youth DISCOVER how Turbines generate electricity through HANDS –ON EXPERIENCE
  • 3. Wind Power Expertise Needed…  The explosion of knowledge has made educators realize that they just can’t “know it all”; no one can…  Effective teaching models today assume the approach of the “guide on the side” rather than the “sage on the stage”.  Your job is not to “know it all” but rather to set up a good learning experience for kids.
  • 4. TOOLS…
  • 5. Challenge: Generate Electricity
  • 6. Completed Nacelle…
  • 7. STEM COMPENCIES  Ask Questions  Use Tools  Construct  Predict  Test  Observe  Measure  Record Data  Troubleshoot  Compare Results  Optimize  Communicate
  • 8. 4H Power of Wind Training Ames Iowa 1/21/10 Dr. Mike Lindstrom Mike.r.lindstrom@gmail.com
  • 9. Middelgrunden,Denmark
  • 10. INQUIRY BASED LEARNING  Inquiry Learning = Discovery!  In inquiry-based learning, youth build understanding through active exploration and questioning.  The key to Inquiry Learning: ◦ YOUTH seek answers to questions rather than being given answers. ◦ ADULTS FACILITATE the learning process and not simply disseminate knowledge.
  • 11. So what do we tell them?  Any safety-related information (the “discovery method” is not the best way to learn safety)  To reflect  To try things  To talk to others (including experts)  Respond with a question when possible  Provide hints if needed
  • 12. Where the Power of Wind is being Taught
