The E in STEM
An effective engineering curriculum provides great potential for middle and high school STEM teaching and learning. This is because an authentic engineering practice embodies the practical application of science, technology and math to solve a meaningful problem. Engineering is STEM, and if delivered effectively, students will find meaning in complementary disciplines and ultimately acquire the confidence and motivation to pursue a career in STEM. But there’s a problem. A truly authentic engineering practice is inherently iterative - highly iterative – and teachers and students struggle to find the time or money for the level of iteration that yields deep and meaningful levels of learning.
We invite you to hear one teacher’s solution to this problem. It is a story of how the process of informed iteration transformed her teaching and her students’ learning through a set of robust virtual learning applications that are coupled with robust hands-on construction. This powerful turn-key STEM experience, called WhiteBox Learning, dynamically puts the “E in STEM.”
