During our two weeks we were challenged to imagine our classroom. If we had unlimited resources, what would we want to accomplish? What goals do we have for our students?
Through discussion, group work, readings and meetings I chose how students connect with science content. I have observed that students think events just "happen"; no cause, no effect. I wanted students know understand that their choices affect the world around them. Those choices have scientific consequences.
I have titled this project, "Empowering Students with STEM: Connections Matter.", and I have explained my project visually as well as technically. This is a work in progress so revisions will be made throughout the year.
I am excited to begin this journey and am looking for to see how my students use this project to view the world with a new lens....a lens that incorporates STEM!
