iSTEM: Engaging Native American Youth in STEM: This video highlights 3rd – 8th grade Native American students engaged in informal science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activities in a National Science Foundation funded project, iSTEM. Working with three k-12 public schools in southern Arizona, the iSTEM project combines a mentoring program with informal science activities. Students are paired with an adult mentor who is a STEM professional, university student, and/or tribal member. The informal science activities are thematically driven (e.g. solar energy; mapping and GIS; soils, space and Earth; watershed; ecology, health) and include hands-on “flash” STEM activities engaged in during student lunch breaks along with a thematically related community-located field trips. This video includes short segments of students engaged in various iSTEM project activities that are guided by a Funds of Knowledge framework – highlighting the project’s efforts to make the STEM activities culturally and geographically relevant.
