What is STEM and Why is it Important?

What is STEM?

STEM stands for science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Even outside the classroom, STEM is an essential part of our lives. Science is found everywhere. From why the sky is the color it is to what lurks beneath the ocean floor, science is a subject every student must tackle. Technology is continually growing and changing with every living day. With technology holding such an important part in medicine, commercial industry, and even education it is important for students to fully understand the basic aspects of technology before venturing out into the real world. Although engineering may not stem directly linked to your student’s life, it has expanded to must greater horizons than you may have thought. Engineering covers everything from building bridges to predicting future weather patterns. And lastly, mathematics is found no matter where you go. If your students strive to be accountants, or doctors, or even are inspired to follow in your footsteps and become educators, math is something that will follow close behind.

Why is STEM Important?

According to the U. S. Department of Commerce, STEM occupations are growing at 17%, while other occupations are growing at a mere 9.8%. Students who hold STEM degrees receive a higher salary than students who don’t. STEM careers fuel the regional economy. That being said, it is important to start them early. STEM is bridging the gap between ethnicity and gender because no matter your race or no matter your gender, STEM stays the same. STEM activities both inside and outside the classroom are a vital component to student’s education. Students must be taught by enthusiastic teachers using hands-on and minds-on activities and educational tools.

STEM Products

For example, students could utilize a product called Cublets. Cublets are robotic blocks that are a fast and easy way to inspire kids to become better thinkers. They encourage cooperative and group collaboration and are compelling reasons for mathematics, computational thinking, literacy, teamwork, life science, robotics, coding engineering, and student- directed learning. Since there is no need for programming, children as young as four years old can connect and construct their own robots. Cublets are a perfect addition to any curriculum ranging from Pre-K to High School and beyond! Want to go further in the robotic industry? Check out OzoBot. Ozobot Bit and Ozobot Evo are both easy to integrate into any curriculum – STEM and beyond. Ozobot Bit can be as fun or challenging as you make it. Simple and intuitive to use on one side, highly programmable and versatile on the other – there is something for every type of thinker, with our tiny tinker robot. On the other hand, Ozobot Evo entertains right out of the box with autonomous LED lights, sounds and movements. Evo uses Infrared Proximity Sensing to avoid obstacles and App-Enabled RC Controls to explore the world with you. Another popular product is Makey Makey, which encourages students to turn everyday objects into touchpad while combining them with the internet. It is a simple invention kit for beginners utilizing some of STEM’s main focuses such as technology and engineering. STEM is the way of the future and it is our jobs to shape that future for students and educators alike.

Chromebooks Are The Next Big Thing

Acer Chromebooks are the talk of the education realm.  Chromebooks take only seconds to start up and provide users with thousands of different apps, virus-protection, and a cloud to store and save data. According to Chris Smith, Director of Education Technology Communication Services Bath Central School District in New York, with the use of technology (such as chromebooks), “teacher’s roles [are shifting] to become supporters of learning and [helping] students understand what it means to be adaptable and collaborative” (Beyond Textbooks, p.3). Many schools are beginning to “flip” their learning by making students responsible for the independent study of material at home (that goes beyond more than just homework) while having teachers act as simply a guide in the classroom. With chromebooks, students are able to watch lectures or lessons while also having the opportunity to expand their learning horizons by participating in online tutorials… all from the comfort of their own homes, freeing up time in the classroom for more one-on-one learning experiences and interactive learning projects. Acer Chromebooks provide students with a new sense of independence. Now-a-days, students will need to possess a whole new set of skills in order to be successful in our technology-driven society. In the Bath Central School District, the IT department gained enough resources to connect their entire school district and are now able to focus their resources on curriculum and professional development, shifting the focus from the teacher to the student.Our future generations need to learn to become independent, collaborative, responsive students. Using Acer technology such as chromebooks, students can rely less on their teachers and more on themselves. Chromebooks and other technological sources allow students to apply what they’re learning to the real world using means such as video conferencing and blog sites. Review on one of the MANY Chromebooks available at Educate-Me.Net!acer chrome book 1 The Acer Chromebook CB5-311-T7NN has a 13.3 inch HD screen with 16 GB flash memory and amazing mobility. This chromebook can be slipped into your bag before school or work and you won’t have to worry about charging it all day- because its outstanding battery life is capable of holding a charge that will last you until you get home! The CB5-311-T7NN features the latest 802.11ac2wireless technology, for a smooth internet experience at connection speeds that are up to three times faster than that of previous-generation wireless technologies. The Acer Chromebook’s seamless touch1 functionality allows you to surf, organize, and edit with just a swipe of your finger. With this chromebook’s small stature, less than an inch thick, paired with its sports a fan-less1 design, you will experience whisper-quiet computing wherever you go!

Robotic device allows student to rejoin the classroom

Double from Double Robotics gives you a physical presence at school when you can’t be there in person.  double robotics Double is being used in higher education in many ways, including building hybrid classrooms with both online and in-person students, to enable professors to continue teaching when they move out of state, and even in library services for giving remote tours and showcasing innovative technology. Bringing the rich learning environment of a classroom to a homebound or hospitalized student can be very difficult. Double enables the remote student to join the classroom in realtime, interact with other students one-on-one, and participate in group discussion. The telepresence robot is a revolutionary tool for homebound students. Double is helping to save school districts tens of thousands of dollars in their Professional Development budgets. Through partnerships with service providers, like Lindamood-Bell and TinyEYE Therapy Services, experts can join the classroom remotely, while maintaining a mobile presence. The remote expert no longer wastes time driving around the district or flying around the country. You can get more PD for your budget or re-allocate that budget to other learning activities. Double Robotics helped Eric Tuthill, an 18 year old student suffering from dysautonomia. Eric’s dysautonomia — also known as autonomic neuropathy — often forces him to stay at home. The vibrations from the short drive from his Lake Ann home to Traverse City can create side effects that last more than a week. His mother, Julianne Tuthill, assesses the risks every time they leave the house. The family seized the opportunity when TBAISD’s assistive technology team suggested using Double 2 Telepresence Robot to all Eric to attend school while at home.  Read the full story here.
