Posted 12/16/2009 12:34pm Eric BrunsellAsst Professor of Science Education @ UW-Oshkosh Blogger 2014 Facilitator 2014 Don- I agree completely. I strongly believe that our secondary science courses should have a strong focus on science applications -- engineering, technology, medicine, environmental, etc. Eric [quote]As a High School Engineering & Technology instructor, I am somewhat disappointed in the way most educators look at STEM. Everyone talks about the Science & Math, both of which are crucial, but the Engineering & Technology sector gets left out in the cold. When you talk to most educators, esp. administrators, they look at Technology as whiteboards, computers, etc. Technology is simply anything Man has created to make his life better & easier.Even a cheap pair of reading glasses is a form of Technology.Engineering is the creative spark that allows humans to change their surroundings to better suit them.Let's not forget that without the T&E, there would be no STEM.[/quote] Sign in to vote!

We've developed a free website called STEMresources.com, which while based on the Tennessee Standards, has an extensive array of materials for anyone interested in STEM Education. I'd love to have your feedback as we move forward with development. Sign in to vote!

Posted 2/4/2010 2:49am Ella Rogers My students are totally engaged when I include online math games within a lesson or as homework. The repetition and association that games=fun really helps them capture the subjects. My class really enjoys MangaHigh.com, a new site with Algebra, Geometry, Quizzes, etc. Has anyone else had success with online math games? Edutopia Sign in to vote!

It offers free lessons on pretty much anything Science and Math related (Although there's more math resources available). The founder was also recently interviewed on CCN here. Sign in to vote!
