In watching the profile videos on Edutopia I just have to wonder if they do not spend too much on computers and not enough time physically creating something.

As a Science Specialist for k-5th graders,I am always looking for new strategies that will engage all of my students. It seems like this is a community of interesting professionals and I look forward to communicating and sharing with this group.

Biggest breakthrough seen in the UK was the appearance of working models in renewable energy. Fuel cell modelFuel cells have great STEM cross curricular application and are fun for children to work with whist getting to grips with savings the planet!

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.

[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]

Hello Everyone:

I'm a newcomer to this group. 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.

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

Our elementary school is transforming from a Magnet School of Math, Science, and Technology to a STEM school. I am very excited about the changes that are about to occur and am looking for resources.

Hello,

A friend on Twitter recommended this resource to me for anyone: The Khan Academy on YouTube. 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.
