Studio STEM: Engaging Middle School Students in Networked Science and Enginee...

NSF Awards: 1247287, 1029756

2015 (see original presentation & discussion)

Grades 6-8, Undergraduate

Studio STEM employs active, inquiry-based learning through engineering design activities to promote conceptual change and problem solving techniques using information and communications technology (ICT). The project aims to engage and encourage rural Appalachian middle grade students to pursue STEM using fundamental concepts in energy conservation and sustainability through an informal design-based studio. This setting allows students to creatively explore and share problems and solutions by documenting their experiences using personal blogs. The project builds on the Save the Animals curriculum, developed in partnership with the Virginia Middle School Engineering Education Initiative, and focuses on solving energy-related problems that explore relevant environmental issues affecting animals and humans.
