Essential Question

“STEM”

How does West Fargo Public Schools define STEM?

stem education
STEM EDUCATION?

STEM?

STEAM?

STEM Instruction?

What is it?

What should we call it?

why 21st century learning
Why 21st Century Learning?
  • The world is changing
  • Schools are not keeping up with the changes. (Kay, 2010)
  • K-12 educators need to rethink what they teach and how they teach it. (Dede, 2010)
slide10

Why STEM…

  • the rapid evolution of the new global “knowledge economy” with profound effects on the world of work—all work?
  • the increasing impact of media and technology on how young people learn and relate to the world—and to each other.(Wagner, Tony: The Global Achievement Gap, 2008,)
  • the United States is falling significantly behind other countries in student performance (Puffenberger, 2012)
  • global demand and competition for STEM talent and intellectual capital (Marshall, 2010)

VCSU Establishes the Great Plains STEM Education Center

  • The North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved a request from Valley City State University (VCSU) to establish the Great Plains STEM Education Center on the VCSU campus.
  • The Center will provide STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) education and training opportunities for K-12 students and teachers as an essential step in the process of increasing the technology and engineering capacity of the U.S. workforce.
  • STEM education is an emerging set of interdisciplinary teaching methods and content in which students learn how to apply rigorous academic concepts in science, technology, engineering and mathematics to real-world problems.
  • Its goal is to increase student literacy in the STEM fields and ultimately increase the number and ability of students entering into STEM-related careers.
