First I want to Thank Edutopia members for checking out the articles on my ScienceGuy Org website, I noticed that much of the traffic to the website comes from Edutopia. For most of my articles I have made a Power Point version available, it doesn't appear that many people download the Power Point version. I thought it was a good idea because a teacher could easily modify the presentation for their needs. There are a good number of downloads from SlideWorld and Slide Share so I will continue to create the Power Points but otherwise I would question the effort. Bill Kuhl

While observing the increasing interest in STEM nationally, mostly what I have seen in practice and at conferences is SteM. In other words, little attention to the technical courses and programs that use math and science in practical real world ways.

I agree. It seems like STEM is just another way "educators" use to describe Science & Math.We are not a) the enemy. b)a foreign language. E&T teachers can be academic teachers best friend when utilized correctly. We put the theory into practice in real-world situations. Last year, I was invited to present our Electrathon electric vehicle at an EdTech expo. There were no Middle or High schools represented, the students were Elementary age & all other presenters were focused on that age group. The students were interested but the concepts were so far above them,I feel that I didn't connect at all. We(E&Tteachers & programs) need to be introduced to younger audiences before they get turned off by simple facts & figuers without practical aspects.

That is interesting and sad also. One would have to wonder if with more hands-on projects in high school if the drop-out rate could be improved any.
