1 Teachers STEMing Out! Lessons Learned from a University and K-12 Educator Collaboration Teachers STEMing Out! Presented By David H. Khaliqi, M.A. Center for STEM Education Also, Peter D. Marle and Lisa L. Decker

2 The Need Fewer students gaining STEM degrees in the US Fewer students matriculating into STEM careers Many students who once typically followed STEM pipeline no longer do STEM Student Enrichment STEM programs at school Programs after school Programs hosted by museums, libraries, etc. Programs hosted by STEM-specific centers Focus of Presentation Teachers STEMing Out!

3 Mission: To energize, equip, and expand the next generation of STEM professionals using comprehensive models of inquiry CSTEME professionals take a systemic approach to enhance and reform STEM education by 1.Developing innovative curricula, resources, and materials for students, parents, and educators 2.Providing academically rigorous STEM pre-collegiate support for middle and high school students 3.Conducting research in STEM teaching and learning 4.Providing professional development opportunities for educators, parents, and communities 5.Building strong community partnerships Center for STEM Education Teachers STEMing Out!

10 Student Data/Results “One thing I did well at this activity was figuring out how to make the car work after hours of being lost and confused on how pieces went. For example, the wheels wouldn’t work at first, and I made some adjustments, and they worked” “I enjoyed the scientific research and problem solving abilities that were tested by these projects” Teachers STEMing Out!

11 Teacher Data/Results “Students can do quite a bit of independent learning in a non- pressured, non-tested environment.” “They seemed to really enjoy the whole day. One group REALLY loved the forensics and didn't like the math so much. The other group REALLY enjoyed the math and didn't like the forensics so much.” Teachers STEMing Out! “I loved this!! Thank you for this opportunity!! Strawberry DNA worked better than human DNA. Students got to take home DNA necklace.” Above are student responses regarding the teachers and the activities. Teacher quotes are taken from later activities with the same collaborating district

12 Contact the Center for STEM Education at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs www.uccs.edu/~pipes dkhaliqi@uccs.edu How Teachers Can Implement Similar Programs Teachers STEMing Out!

13 Activities students participated in last year: Solar Cars Drawdio Crime Scene Investigation Rube Goldberg Computer Game Design Sample Activities Teachers STEMing Out!
