    1. Delivering Sustainable Development Through Integrated STEM Education Mike Daugherty & Vinson Carter

    2. How many of you use engineering design or problem solving in your classroom? • What is your goal or purpose for using this type of instruction? • Have you ever worried that your students might be ‘missing the point’ during these types of instructional activities?

    3. Objectives Today we are going to…… • discuss ways in which traditional engineering design and problem solving might be augmented with a sustainable development focus.

    4. Engineering Design and Problem Solving • Clarity on our position on engineering design and problem solving instruction....it must be…. • standards based • utilize backward design • deliver at least one ‘big idea’ • measureable (driven by assessment) • include an engaging scenario • project-based • deliver STEM content (real-world ) • deliver a final product

    5. One Approach to Enrich Content • Sustainable Development (define ) • offers a rich context for engineering design and problem solving • has the potential to engage students, especially female students • adds a real-world flavor • provides avenues for delivering core concepts in science and mathematics • offers students an opportunity for service learning

    6. Sustainable Development • The majority of real world problems and their solutions do not require “high tech” applications nor would they be successful. • The problems that most humans face daily are best solved using much lower levels of technology than typically used in the classroom. • 80% of the earth's population live and work in environments where high tech solutions would be inappropriate. • The need exists for technology education to address engineering design and problem solving at a more holistic and appropriate level (Wicklein, 2001).

    7. Sustainable Development Problems Are: • simple • use minimal, local resources • can be implemented and maintained by the local population • are truly appropriate/sustainable, having the least negative and societal and environmental impact

    8. Kinds of problems • exploring a question • investigating a historical event • A timely problem solving situation • examining a controversial issue • designing an artifact • creating a piece of writing, art, or multimedia

    9. Where to start? • standards/frameworks • your community (recycling, community history, pets, etc.) • items relevant to students (cars, games, etc.) • what people do outside of school (farmers, construction workers, engineers, dentists, etc.) • colleagues, and on-line resources

    10. Build a FanDesign Challenge Essential Question: Can an efficient foot-operated fan be designed to cool students in areas where electricity is not available?

    11. Mechanical Systems (hook activity) • A Cool Breeze: Mechanically-operated Fan Design Challenge
