My students come from a diverse community of middle and low socioeconomic families. They have not had the opportunity of participating in many STEM projects. They need more opportunities with STEM to further their understanding of all the possibilities STEM has to offer.
I would like to provide my students with rich STEM activities using excellent materials that will stimulate their learning, understanding and enjoyment of STEM and maybe inspire new engineers, mathematicians, scientist, and IT lovers to the future.
I would like to give my students an experience with STEM that has meaning to their lives. In our state spring weather is very active and interesting. With this STEM project students will learn all about the technology that is used in weather watching, they will use math to determine weather patterns and outcomes and they will engineer a "safe place" within communities that the public could access during severe weather episodes. They will come up with ideas on how people can stay connected during severe weather. The students will then apply this knowledge to a nationwide contest for innovative ideas to help people stay safe and connected during severe weather episodes.
