Are YOU making the following STEM mistake? Read on to find out what the mistake is and how you can fix it!
But first, a quick definition of what STEM is and is NOT….
Technically, STEM is an acronym that stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. But it is so much more than this!
“STEM is a mindset – a way of viewing, processing, and interpreting your world.”
A recent study by Ranstad shows that over half of all people surveyed (62%) did not know what STEM stood for. Further, only 16% of American high school seniors are interested in a STEM career, and minorities and women are seriously underrepresented.
The biggest mistake is thinking STEM has to be something ’different’ or ‘extra’.
It’s not, and here’s why….
STEM relates to EVERYTHING. For example, you are making hypotheses when reading a story in ELA class (science), using technology ubiquitously, engineering a way to squeeze out the last bit of toothpaste, and using math to cook dinner. STEM is happening already, every day, in all situations.
DON’T ’do’ STEM. Rather, help your students make natural connections to STEM that already surround them! Not only is this approach easier for you, it is much more relatable and engaging for your students.
STEM career exploration need not be complicated! However it DOES need to be part of your GEAR UP or TRiO program to truly prepare students for college and career. Your program is already on the forefront of preparing tomorrow’s STEM professionals.
If you are ready to work smarter and not harder, here’s some effortless STEM career exploration options to help you do even more. Without more work for you!
