    24. 24. The Gathering Storm- 4 Proposals <ul><li>Increase America's talent pool by vastly improving K-12 mathematics and science education. </li></ul><ul><li>Sustain and strengthen the nation's commitment to long-term basic research. </li></ul><ul><li>Develop, recruit, and retain top students, scientists, and engineers from both the United States and abroad. The United States should be considered the most attractive setting in the world to study and conduct research, the report says. </li></ul><ul><li>Ensure that the United States is the premier place in the world for innovation. This can be accomplished by actions such as modernizing the U.S. patent system, realigning tax policies to encourage innovation, and ensuring affordable broadband Internet access, the report says. </li></ul>
    25. 25. <ul><li>Build public support for making improvement in STEM performance a national priority. </li></ul><ul><li>Motivate U.S. students and adults, using a variety of incentives, to study and enter STEM careers, with a special effort geared to those in currently underrepresented groups. </li></ul><ul><li>Upgrade K–12 mathematics and science teaching to foster higher student achievement. </li></ul><ul><li>Boost and sustain funding for basic research, especially in the physical sciences and engineering. </li></ul>To sustain American competitiveness in science and engineering, we need a focused, long-term, comprehensive initiative by the public and private sectors to:
    26. 26. America’s Pressing Challenge: Building A Stronger Foundation America’s Pressing Challenge – Building a Stronger Foundation: A Companion to Science and Engineering Indicators (2006) National Science Board (NSF) http://www.nsf.gov/statistics/nsb0602/ <ul><li>The NSB identifies priorities: </li></ul><ul><li>strong public support for the value of STEM education for all students and citizens, </li></ul><ul><li>a high quality teaching force, </li></ul><ul><li>appropriate learning opportunities for all students </li></ul><ul><li>effective guidance counseling on STEM education and careers, and </li></ul><ul><li>assessment tools that reinforce learning in STEM fields. </li></ul>
    27. 27. So if all the research says what we need to do then why haven’t we done it yet?? <ul><li>The global economy is changing the nature of work and the kinds of jobs young people will enter are changing. </li></ul><ul><li>Students need higher levels of knowledge and skills than ever before to succeed in workplaces of the 21 st century. </li></ul>
    28. 28. A Focus on STEM <ul><li>Innovation. Competition. Technology. Information. As these forces change our world, they also change the face of science and mathematics education. Change from </li></ul><ul><ul><li>just finding the answer to identifying the problem; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>emphasis on computation to reasoning and problem solving; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>paper and pencil-driven to computer-driven; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>doing routine tasks to discovering new paths for ideas, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>working alone to working in groups. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Instead of &quot;filtering out&quot; students, science and mathematics expands the future options of all students. </li></ul>
    29. 29. <ul><ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New research from ACT shows that the level of readiness needed to enter jobs offering a livable wage is not lower than that needed for college. Therefore, all high school students need to graduate ready for college. </li></ul></ul></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>The demands of college and work are dramatically different today than a generation ago, and it is the job of high schools to prepare students for these demands. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: Graduation Pays, NGA Center for Best Practices, www.nga.org , 2005 </li></ul>STEM for Everyone!
    30. 30. Expectations are the same for both college and “good jobs” <ul><li>American Diploma Project found a high degree of convergence. </li></ul><ul><li>The knowledge and skills that high school graduates will need to be successful in college are the same as those they will need to be successful in a job that: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>pays enough to support a family well above the poverty level, </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>provides benefits, and </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>offers clear pathways for career advancement through further education and training. </li></ul></ul>

    52. 53. ENGINEERS make a world of difference by turning ideas into reality. Engineers question and challenge the things we encounter in everyday life. They seek to improve the products we use in all aspects of our lives. A degree in engineering is preparation for many different careers in almost any field. Why Engineering?
    53. 54. <ul><li>Educators, parents, and business leaders need to promote the benefits and rewards of pursuing a career in science and technology. All too often, these careers are seen as the domain of nerds and geeks, instead of inventors and leaders. Our attitudes even discourage people from these fields by promoting how hard they are instead of how rewarding they can be. </li></ul><ul><li>Source: AeA, Advancing The Business Of Technology, 2005 </li></ul>

    63. 64. Where are we? Where do we want to be? How do we get there? STEM Education
    64. 65. Where are we?---Bill Gates <ul><li>“ America’s high schools are obsolete. </li></ul><ul><li>By obsolete, I don’t just mean that our high schools are broken, flawed, and under-funded– though a case could be made for every one of those points. </li></ul><ul><li>By obsolete, I mean that our high schools – even when they’re working exactly as designed – cannot teach our kids what they need to know today.” </li></ul><ul><li>So if the High Schools are obsolete…how about the Universities? </li></ul>
    65. 66. Where are we?--- Universities KathySierra http://headrush.typepad.com/creating_passionate_users/
    66. 67. If you studied math, science, or engineering at a four-year college in the US, much of what you learned is useless, forgotten, or obsolete. Analysis to Action:Undergraduate Education in STEM; http://www.nap.edu/catalog/9128.html <ul><li>Disconnect between: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>how we teach math and science </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>how mathematicians and scientists actually work </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Often teach encyclopedias of facts without engagement in the process </li></ul><ul><li>Assessment often does not evaluate understanding </li></ul>Where are we?--- Universities
    67. 68. Where do we want to be?--- The new three R’s: <ul><li>Rigor – making sure all students are given a challenging curriculum that prepares them for college or work </li></ul><ul><li>Relevance – making sure kids have courses and projects that clearly relate to their lives and their goals </li></ul><ul><li>Relationships – making sure kids have a number of adults who know them, look out for them, and push them to achieve… Parent, S chool, University, and Business Involvement </li></ul>
    68. 69. How do we get there? “STEM” Education <ul><li>Vision </li></ul><ul><li>There needs to be an enhanced curriculum in science, technology, engineering, and math, with a strong emphasis on discovery. This will stimulate the interest of young people in science and provide a pipeline of young Americans who are capable, critical decision makers prepared to seize the opportunities in the expanding fields of science. </li></ul>To be most effective, this enhanced curriculum must include an appropriate support structure.
