Elementary Technology Teacher

Amen! I am fortunate to teach elementary tech courses, focusing on the engineering and design aspects of STEM. Why have educators created such a false structure of learning? Students are much more motivated to learn math and science when they see the hands-on applications in engineering and design! -And it increases their learning and understanding exponentially.

Online Community Manager at TV411

I am a former class room teacher and now the Online Community Manager for TV411. We have a new National Science Foundation funded module called TV411 Whats Cooking! that uses cooking to convey scientific and math concepts. We have a range of videos and corresponding web lessons on our website that are free and open to the public. In addition to our science content, we also have hundreds of videos and web lessons related to literacy and other math concepts that I hope can be helpful to you guys.

A great way to suppliment a science curriculum for high school is sciencegeek.net and the Physics 2000 website through Colorado State.

Kirk,

My company has developed an introductory course to game design that incorporates all aspects of STEM called GAME:IT. We use the engineering cycle to design the games, math and physics to make the games realistic and technology to build the game. This course can easily be used as on online class. The cost is $499/school/year (unlimited seats). Check out our website - http://www.stemfuse.com or e-mail me at kari.tatge@stemfuse.com

Don Morgan has described something that I have seen first hand as an engineer who volunteers in local K-12 classrooms and afterschool. I am a big proponent of developing teacher/volunteer partnerships that address this huge gap. I also see very little money or attention/effort put into K-6.

We are very excited to share with you our newly posted app on the itunes store. This is an interactive fiction book for children (based on real science), titled "Save the Corals."

We invite you to download the app at the itunes store. Your students will enjoy reading and engaging in moving the story forward as they explore possibilities of saving corals and the 4,000 plus marine life that live in this ocean village. Here's the itunes link to the app:
