International K-12 Student STEM Projects

Norma Thornburg

Abstract:

This dynamic talk features examples of student projects in the STEM fields from Brazil and the United States based on a model of inquiry-driven project-based learning. Participants will see examples of student work that goes way beyond the scope of material presented in textbooks and has the effect of getting students fully engaged in their studies. From first-graders to high school seniors, projects range across STEM disciplines, including space exploration.

Anyone interested in seeing the efficacy of programs designed to help prepare students for a dynamic future is invited to attend.
