University of Houston: Learning through Formal and Informal Learning Experiences

NSF Awards: 1557309

2021 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Grades 9-12, Undergraduate, Graduate, Informal / multi-age

teachHOUSTON is the University of Houston’s STEM teacher preparation program. When COVID-19 hit, the teachHOUSTON directors knew it would affect the opportunity for students to engage in STEM over the summer - so they got creative and designed the teachHOUSTON STEM Interactive (tHSI) which transformed the idea of what teaching and learning during a pandemic could be. With COVID impacting STEM teaching and learning for the foreseeable future, teachHOUSTON enlisted the help of undergraduate and graduate students from the college and provided them with valuable experience, as interns, preparing and teaching lessons online. Utilizing these preservice and in-service teachers, as well as teachHOUSTON faculty and STEM experts, they hosted tHSI, a three-week, virtual STEM experience for students going into sixth through ninth grade that was largely funded by an NSF Noyce Grant.

Students participated in interactive mini-lessons, science experiments, prototyping, and engineering design challenges. The interns prepared and taught lessons via Zoom and gained nearly 400 teaching hours and the confidence needed to facilitate their own virtual classrooms. tHSI addressed issues of access by designing and implementing virtual programming, sharing lessons, and creating a webpage for those videos to live long after tHSI was complete.

In the end, tHSI’s Facebook page welcomed 1107 participants and garnered over 9,000 posts and comments in just 21 days. In addition, the online experience was accessed by more than 3,000 students from various countries so, while the name "teachHOUSTON" encompasses one area, the impact of tHSI was global.

    On behalf of our entire team, welcome to our page and thank you for taking the time to view our passion project! We are excited to share our video titled - teachHOUSTON STEM Interactive: STEM Accessible Worldwide.

    When COVID-19 put a stop to in-person learning, we had no idea how many students and families would be positively impacted by our online interactive. Initially, we had hoped for a few hundred participants and ended up reaching more than 3,000 students from all over the world. Last summer, we covered math, science, and engineering in just three short weeks and through pre-recorded lessons, live Zoom sessions, and a highly interactive Facebook page, we were able to make STEM accessible.

    Please enjoy our video, which details more about our teachHOUSTON STEM interactive (tHSI), and feel free to check out our archived 2020 lessons: https://uh.edu/nsm/teachhouston/summer-camps/stem-interactive/2020/lessons/

    We invite you to comment, like, and share so we can engage further. As for discussion, we are especially interested in your specific project and:

    • Ways you adjusted during the pandemic.
    • How you believe we can work together to make STEM accessible for all.

    Thank you, and we look forward to your feedback and insights!

    What a wonderful video! It is so inspiring to see how widely you've been able to scale your program, and the impact you've been able to have on individual students. Congratulations on this great work! I'm wondering: What types of student and/or student-teacher learning or affective outcomes have you been examining, and what have you found?

    Thanks Josephine.  We appreciate your comments!  We do have a publication in press about the generative mentoring that took place during the program as we had faculty, in-service teachers, and preservice teachers working together and mentoring each other in a multi-layered manner.  We also found an increase in the teachers' self efficacy in teaching in an online platform.

    Thanks for sharing your success story! Scaling great local programs like this is obviously a big challenge in education. I'm wondering, what do you think made it possible for you to take this from a program serving 50 students in person to over 3,000 virtually? Did you set out to do this with a specific plan and structures in mind, or did it just happen?

    Hello Patrick,

    Thank you for watching our video.  The answer is both.  Yes, we had a specific plan in mind that evolved as we made the decision to go virtual.  We had a structure in place with a different theme each day of the week.  We had 5 mini teams comprised of faculty, graduates, and preservice STEM teachers.  We also worked with our communications department and school districts to get the word out. Even though we had a plan in mind, it evolved daily and took a lot of on the spot decision making.  We did not anticipate having over 3,000 students. In fact, we were shocked!  So, we ended up offering more sessions as the numbers went up.  We learned a lot the first year and are now better prepared for this year's virtual endeavor.

    Hi Patrick! Thank you for taking the time to watch our video. It was a little bit of both! Up front, we knew that it had to be virtual, free, and involve our pre-service and in-service teachers in some way.

    Our specific plan was to create lesson plans for each subject area and pre-release supply lists so that families could gather up household items before lessons were released. Then we created a Facebook page for students and families to interact with us, designed pre-recorded lessons to share each day, and planned to host live sessions to provide for more interaction.

    The fun began once we started keeping track of how many students were being registered! We organically began to adjust to the high demand. On day one, we changed our live session platform from Microsoft Teams to Zoom after receiving feedback, via FB, from students and families. We also delegated specific groups to monitor the page daily and then just kept adapting on the fly. In short, what made it possible was the entire team coming together and making it happen. 

    To this day, we still smile about how we were able to come together and reach so many students. We're doing it again in a few weeks, so I guess that tells you how much we learned from last year and enjoyed hosting it!

    Thanks for an inspiring video.  The summer experience was clearly transformative for students.  Please tell us a bit more about the level of interactivity that you were able to achieve for 3,000 students.  How did you facilitate students from around the world having experiences with each other?  Did all 3,000 connect directly with staff, or were some of them merely accessing available asynchronous materials?  What did a "session" look like?

    Thanks.

    Marion, 

    Thank you for taking the time to watch our video! As you can imagine, the volume of participation was overwhelming at the onset of the camp. We truly did not expect the desire for this interaction to be so great! With aid from our university leadership, we were able to troubleshoot ways to increase our ability to reach every participant within the scope of their accessibility. 

    Our camp had asynchronous challenges based on the STEM content theme of the day as well as multiple synchronous lessons held throughout the day. This allowed children and families from multiple time zones to participate in their own way. The synchronous sessions varied but allowed up to 500 participants at a time as our preservice teachers and faculty facilitated lessons using gamification, Q&As and even a little dancing in between for brain breaks. We truly wanted our participants to be a part of something greater, much like we would during a face-to-face camp. Even with the large number of participants, they could still be seen through our sessions and Facebook group; they could still be heard through our chats and sharing recorded videos. It was an amazing experience to say the least!

    Thank you for your questions!

    Hello Marion,

    Thank you for your post.  The summer experience included both synchronous and asynchronous components.  The students were provided with a challenge of the day through an asynchronous lesson (a materials list was provided a week earlier).  Then, they would share their designs via a private Facebook group where they would interact with each other and directly with staff.  Most of them posted actual videos which were fun to watch.  We ensured that all student postings had  several comments from staff.  They could also interact with us via email as not all were on FB.  We also hosted 4 zoom sessions each day that were interactive and well attended. Many students stayed well beyond the 45 minute lesson to interact with us.  You could tell that they missed the student to student and student to teacher interactions.  The "typical" session started out with an ice-breaker where they would answer a question in the chat.  Then, the lesson would cover the topic of the day in an interactive format using many technologies available where they could participate in Q&A, games, etc. At the end, students stayed around to chat and show their designs.  It was a whirlwind experience as we were figuring it out daily.  This year's interactive starts in a few weeks and we are excited for year 2 of this endeavor.

    Your project is so inspiring and the students certainly seemed to learn and thrive though the lessons  - an amazing feat considing the online platform - congratulations. I am curious to know more about how you were able to 'recruit' the university students and did this oppotunity encourage any of them to consider shifting to science teaching?

    Hello Stephanie,

    Thank you for watching our video.  We recruited from many populations, in-service teachers, preservice teachers, and those who were new to our program and trying to figure out if they wanted to teach.  We do believe that this solidified their desire to teach for many of the interns.

    Thank you for sharing this wonderful program. I appreciate that your lessons and projects utilized common household items to allow more students to engage in hands-on STEM learning despite being stuck at home due to the pandemic. My guess would be that this aspect of accessibility may have played a part in motivating 3,000 students from around the world to participate in the program. Amazing!

It's wonderful to see how the program benefited the younger students and the pre-service teachers who participated, and how you took advantage of the opportunity to reach even more students. I'd love to hear more about the drawings that students made of engineers. How many times did students make those drawings? How many students' drawings changed over time to show engineers who looked like them? Thank you!

    Thank you for sharing the wonderful work you all are doing for education!  This was a win for preservice teachers and for the participating students.  I was touched by the student interview at the end.  That moment is what gives all educators the fuel to keep doing what we love to do...teach...no matter the conditions.  

    @Allison Master - I have done the same "draw a scientist" activity for the last 3 years (courtesy of what I learned through graduate work at U of H).  The number of student drawings that change from the first day of school to the last day of school is amazing.  After taking Mariam's engineering class, I started putting the engineering design process at the forefront of my lessons.  Putting tools in students' hands is when I saw the change in drawings occur.  My students weren't learning science anymore...they were experiencing science.  The white male scientist changed age, color, and gender.

    Collaboration between key stakeholders can make a great impact on students, as evident at the end of the video. I am curious about your lesson design/structure to lead the sheer number of participants in the synchronous session and any challenges you encountered along the way. Furthermore, do you have plans to expand the program to upper-grade elementary students?

    Hello Khyati,

    Thank you for watching our video. We had 5 teams (one for each day of the week with a specific theme).  On each team, we had a faculty member, in-service teacher, and undergraduate preservice teachers.  Since each team was responsible for one day each week, they were able to practice the lesson ahead of time and also brainstorm ways to make it engaging.  We would use nearpod, chat features, simulations, games, and other apps.  It was challenging with the number of students that participated and we ended up increasing the number of daily Zoom sessions after day 1 so that more could participate. The other part that was challenging is that we (faculty included) were new to delivering online lessons and had never hosted a virtual camp.  Every day was a new adventure!   We were very fortunate to have a dedicated team. 

    We would like to expand this to upper-grade elementary and also to high school students in the future (pending funding).  We did have some upper-level elementary students participate during summer 2020.  However, it was targeted for those going into grades 6-9.

    Thank you teachHouston for leading the way during this most challenging year in education. Your expertise and ability to pivot provided much needed hands-on and collaborative science learning experiences for so many students. Thank you too for modeling what STEM can look like when students are not in the classroom. I feel confident your program helped to deepen curiosity in, and passion for, experiencing science in students, as well as in educators:)

    It is a very inspiring and impressive video. STEM Interactive not only provided an interactive platform for students during the pandemic but also took it to another level by increasing the participation in the program from 50 to 3000. It also gave students an opportunity to explore their own self. The students who were not sure what engineer looks like were able to identify the engineer within themselves. I am proud of all the presenters of teachHouston program who made it a great success story.

    This is a great project highlighting girls in engineering! I love how the girl drew a picture of a man as an engineer, but then changed it too herself. As a researcher and co-presenter, when I was a child, researchers were old men in business suits-lol.  I had not seen myself-young, short, blond woman as a researcher. This is a great way to change the way girls and women see themselves! Awesome!

    Hi Patti! Thank you so much for your kind words! We were hosting in-person summer camps pre-pandemic, so we hope to get back to that. However, seeing how many students were able to access our lessons virtually has opened a door to new possibilites for how we choose to offer camps once the pandemic is under control. We're still virtual this summer, but will reevaluate for Summer of 2022!

    This is amazing! I love that it’s free and not only helping younger students, but involving college students as well. Just watching the video of the student almost crying shows how much this can affect each person!

    Such an inspiring video. It’s great to see programs taking the right steps to prepare the next generation for STEM programs while showing them that anything is possible regardless of their gender. I would love to see more programs like this across our education system!

    Thank you for the many comments on the program. I am amazed how a summer institute meant for 60 local/regional students mushroomed into a 3000+ event, thanks to the Zoom technology and "kitchen-like" labs, which the Grade 6-9 students clearly loved and learned from.

    Amazing! love seeing the joy in the students eyes as they share their experiences and excitement about being seen. I also love how inclusive the program is and especially for young girls how it opens their eyes to having a career in STEM and that it’s not only a field for men. Incredible program!
