  1. 1. Konstantin Tsygankov Challenges in STEM Tallinn 2019
  2. 2. 2 × Robot dexterity × Predicting preemies × Smooth-talking AI assistants - But „94% of engineering graduates are not fit for hiring“. Economic Times Where time seems to fly?
  3. 3. 3 3 STEM curriculum idea Science Technology Engineering Mathematics — STEM in an interdisciplinary and applied approach.
  4. 4. 4 4 +R =+Robotics Current Trends STEM +A +R +A=+Art
  5. 5. 5 55 Business goals influence Investors looking for unicorn Start-ups Digital services priority (SAAS, Clouds) Time to market - finishing on the go Ability to copy concepts in a weeks
  6. 6. 6 66 Business influence to technology Simplicity in usage Increase value for customer and lowering production demand cost Customization not encouraged
  7. 7. 7 77 Ministry of education routine Learning not only knowledge, but also skills, so Schools Curriculum expanding. Highly educated specialist and graduates leave the country more, than foreigners come over, so Technical colleges study programs and labour market should interact.
  8. 8. 8 88 What do parents expect? Teachers individual approach to kid needs Learning multiple languages on more than average level Free Higher Education
  9. 9. 9 99 Nowadays working practice and online trainings helps to become a specialist. But to be the best need permanent study. 999 How parents see their children's future Outstanding leader with University diploma.
  10. 10. 1010 Hyperactive children wants to study interesting. They also require increased attention. If the child has lost the thread of reasoning he loses interest in learning 10 What do students want at school?
  11. 11. 11 What are the teachers worries? Educational process should be maximum simplified, as mechanical work. The curriculum does not intend for testing innovations. No time for trying, especially for subjects with exams. Partly difficulties caused by switching from Russian to Estonian. (Teacher shortage). Teachers have the freedom to choose how to conduct a lesson. 1111
  12. 12. Where to target the student? The process does not mean the result! 12
  13. 13. How to evaluate the result? Risk of negatively affecting self-esteem 13
  14. 14. Gamification of study process Let’s play: 1. How to measure SATISFACTION? 2. What will we measure? 14
  15. 15. System architecture 15 1. What blocks does it consist of? 2. What will develop first? 3. Which development teams will we get? 4. How are we going to test the prototype? 5. Is it possible to make a universal device?
  16. 16. How to formulate a hypothesis 16 1. Links between 1.1 Physical phenomena 1.2 Conductors 1.3 Carriers 1.4 Energy transformations 2. Data analytics 2.1 Graph data reading 2.2 Results visualization
  17. 17. What does Engineering mean in STEM? 17 This is not only about how things works and how to get practical usage, but also about responsibility for the work done, the optimal order, the convenience of use, lean processes.
  18. 18. What is Math by STEM approach then? 18 It is also not only solutions, equations, functions graphs, but also logic, accuracy and efficiency. Inscriptions on surgical caps save precious seconds.
  19. 19. 19 Roles Problem Statement: Architect Model: Constructor Assembly: Civil Engineer Measurement: Inspector Communications social skills need to be trained Teamwork by roles or professions
