STEM-Starter: An Incubator and Launch Pad to STEM Entrepreneurship and Careers

NSF Awards: 1614182

2018 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 9-12

STEM-Starter: An Incubator and Launch Pad to STEM Entrepreneurship and Careers is funded by an NSF grant that focuses on the development of students’ entrepreneurial skills through STEM-focused senior Capstone projects.  The project intends to help address critical secondary education and workforce development needs in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). Students in the STEM-Starter Capstone project identify a real world problem and develop a product, service or other solution to solve it, usually leveraging science, technology, math and engineering skills. The video shows students working through their individual projects from ideation (identifying a problem) to prototype to final presentations of their solutions.  This innovative project allows for hands-on, personalized learning that ultimately results in gains in 21st Century skills and an increased interest in STEM subjects and entrepreneurship.  The Capstone course ends with a culminating Student Innovation Expo in May where students have an opportunity to pitch their solutions to industry professionals to get feedback on their work.
