Random, but Important Notes:

CKSD STEM Website:http://centralkitsapstem.weebly.com/index.htmlPBL = Problem/Project-Based Learning.

Today’s workshop is really PBL in action.

Your challenge will be to implement some cross content, integrated problem-based projects with your students in your existing context.Slide5

Today’s Goals/Objectives:

Gain a deeper understanding of STEM Understand our DoDEA STEM Grant and how to access it

Gain a

deeper understanding of Project Based Learning ( Theory & Practices, Examples, Etc…. )Gather a list of PBL RESOURCES to explore and utilizeBegin developing a PLAN for the yearSlide6


What is currently going on in your building that you think is STEMish ? Slide7


Think, Walk, Stand!Slide8

The Different Faces of STEM

SteM – science and math are the primary foci and are considered the most importantS|T|E|M

– each discipline stands on its

own (Silos)sTEm – a “CTE-type” emphasis that primarily focuses on preparation for selected careers in technology and engineeringSTEM – integrated focus involving science, technology, engineering and math that emphasizes content applicationSlide9

What is STEM Education anyways (1)?

Science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education often has been called a meta-discipline, the

“creation of a discipline based on the integration of other disciplinary knowledge into a new “whole”

. This interdisciplinary bridging among discrete disciplines is now treated as an entity, known as STEM (Morrison, 2006).”Slide10

What is STEM Education anyways (2)?

STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts


coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy (Tsupros, 2009).Slide11

What is STEM Education anyways (3)?

“……STEM education is greater than any interdisciplinary paradigm. It is actually trans-disciplinary in that it offers a multi-faceted whole with greater complexities and new spheres of understanding that ensure the integration of disciplines. This concept is further reinforced by Kaufmann (2003) and by the fact that

new innovations and inventions today tend to be made at the boundaries of these four disciplines, where they naturally overlap.

Biochemistry, biomechanics, biophysics, biotechnology, and bioengineering are representative of the overlapping of the disciplines we know as biology (Hays Blain Lantz 2009).”Slide12

Describe your vision of what a great STEM Education

would look & feel like in your classroom and/or building ?

STEM Grant Overview:


year, 2.5 million dollar grant awarded in June 2012Develop and Support Cross-Content STEM teams at each secondary site (7 sites) Years 1,2,3ACE: Provide Flight Simulator Classrooms, curriculum, equipment, and PD for teachers


afterschool and summer STEM opportunities Support elementary

Budget Considerations $$$

Total Team Budget:$ 6,000 per building team for CC STEM work____________________________________________Release Day Cost:

Full day ≈ $120 per teacher

Half day ≈ $60 per teacher____________________________________________Hourly pay: For time spent after-hours on CC STEM work @ per diem rate ≈ $46 (varies based on salary)Slide16

Calendar Considerations

Plan out at least your next Cohort #1 team meeting today.As part of the DoDEA Grant requirements, we will solicit updates from your team during the year.There will be a day in late May

(TBD) when we will all gather again here at the OESD. The purpose of the Spring Workshop will be to formally present your work to the other teams and plan for next year (14-15).Slide17

STEM Notebook

Review & File Key documents >If and when updated versions are sent to you, please remove the old and replace with the new.Slide18

Break Time10 min.


Next Slides for use with Resources(Defined STEM Info.)Slide20

Defined STEMA strong pre-packaged option for pursuing PBL with your students > lots of entry points

If you have at least 4-5 teachers willing to use this resource, we can fund a building license for the year. This will not be taken from your CC team funding.PD options: unlimited WebX trainings at your convenience. Also an onsite option but it’s expensive.Slide21

Defined STEM staff will host a live, informational web meeting for your building to walk you through the resource. Recommend !!!Defined STEM-ContinuedSlide22

Next Slide used for Directions prior to Team TimeSlide23

Team Time Expectations

Discuss the work you want to pursue as a team and try to agree upon some common Goals/Objectives.

Explore some of the PBL & STEM resources that might help guide or assist you with your plan.
