It is increasingly important for students to develop strong STEM competencies so that they are prepared to solve increasingly complex global challenges. With specific focus on the importance of STEM content in middle school, this course will also create exciting learning environments for students. This course will prepare attendees to use project-based learning through a variety of lenses – from transportation to earth science to robotics- all while demonstrating the important impact of STEM concepts.
Increasingly, educators and students alike seek hands-on, sustainable, and cost-effective approaches to help engage young people and maintain their interest in STEM through elementary school, middle school, high school, and beyond.
By its nature, the study of competitive robotics not only encompasses all four pillars of STEM education, but also encourages important life skills like teamwork, communication, and project-based organization. The Robotics Education & Competition (REC) Foundation exists to bring this exciting experience to students all over the globe.
This session would give an overview of the seismic activity in the New Madrid Seismic Zone and its impact on the region, using historic and scientific data to understand the earthquakes of 1811-1812.
Social networking, blogging and tweeting have become an important part of students’ daily activities. This session will discuss the importance of virtual socialization, and the roles and responsibilities of a digital citizen.
This session will highlight practical applications of math and science content to traffic engineering principles, and ways to engage students in projects that utilize current technology and showcase the impact of transportation engineering professionals in our communities.
Hydrological science studies the terrestrial phase of the water cycle. Its teaching is hampered by the scale of application (the basin or watershed) and the fact that many processes occur within the soil, out of direct sight.
In this hands-on workshop, participants will about aquifers. This session allows participants to manipulate materials, observe, ask questions, and make connections. Because aquifers are underground and not seen, building a model helps participants to visualize and understand the mechanics of an aquifer.
