2 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs ENGAGEMENT ENRICHMENT and ENTERPRISE in STEM Education: Are we pulling in the same direction?

3 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs 3 We have all heard the concerns about science education …… ‘…the present state of scientific instruction in our schools is extremely unsatisfactory.’ The Devonshire Royal Commission of 1875

4 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs ….. read the reports…

5 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs … and seen the headlines …. The Times October 2006 The Times August 2007

6 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs … but it is not all doom and gloom The Times August 2012

7 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs A-Level Entries, UK

8 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Science is a central theme…. Reports of the Paralympic Opening Ceremony 29 August 2012

9 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs 81% young people found science lessons very or fairly interesting at school Wellcome Trust Monitor (2010) Young people are interested ….

10 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Wellcome Trust Monitor (2010) 95% of young people said it was fairly or very important for science to be taught up to the age of 16 Young people think it is important….

11 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Most young people tend to think science is useful for their career… 73% Y8 (aged 13yrs) agree science is generally useful for their futures; 70% feel that science is useful for getting a good job; and 79% believe scientists do valuable work; 63% think scientists make a lot of money. ASPIRES Project (2012)

12 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So let us pause to celebrate….. Family life

13 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs BUT there is still a long way to go….. the improvements are still fragile; progress within and between countries is not equal; too much exists in isolation; lessons do not always cross boundaries; evaluation and assessment of impact is generally weak.

14 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs To make further progress, we need to…. review our long term outcomes; define the problem more precisely; recognise and value the importance of ALL forms of engagement; develop coherent strategic approaches at all levels; in the final analysis, invest in our young people.

15 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs What are we trying to achieve, ultimately… a society that values the contribution of STEM to its prosperity, well-being and culture; citizens who recognise and use the products of STEM to aid them in different aspects of their lives; individuals who use and understand STEM as part of their jobs and careers; a supply of well-trained scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians to meet the demands of business, industry and the public sector in maintaining strong global and national economies.

16 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what is the problem ….. Liking science is not enough….(but it is a start) Aspires Project 2012

17 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what is the problem ….. It is complex and the issues include: misconceptions about STEM subjects: science for ‘brainy’ and ‘not girly’ enough, reduce options for future study and careers; awareness of STEM careers very narrow; choices about careers start to form early (10-14 years); family background and context is major factor; it is not just about graduates and higher qualifications…. it is also technicians; and….

18 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what is the problem…. Our perspectives differ so we get crossed wires…. …..even when we are in agreement! “ Most children like science, it is just that they may like other subjects more” (Pupil age 10yrs)

19 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what is the problem…. Employers want young people who: think critically for themselves; solve problems using innovative and imaginative approaches; work independently and as part of a team as necessary; communicate effectively through different forms of media; develop good interpersonal relationships; adapt to changing circumstances; know some ‘stuff’. (Marita Aho, IAP Conference Helsinki 2012) So do teachers, parents, administrators etc.!

20 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what do we need to do …. Promote learning to generate… excitement, interest and motivation; knowledge, understanding and use of ideas; capabilities in skills and processes; participation and working with others; identity with STEM.

21 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what do we need to do …. Work on the basic ingredients… What we teach – curriculum How we teach – pedagogy How we know what is being learnt - assessment What we need to teach – facilities and resources

22 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what do we need to do…. Remember, “under 20% of a young person’s waking hours are spent in school” John Bransford, University of Seattle

23 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So what do we need to do … Work together building on the good work so far: formal and informal education; STEM Clubs, Science Centres, museums fairs and competitions; ISEF, EUCYS, UK Big Bang Fair teacher development; Intel Educator Academies STEM Communities; Inter Academies Panel education - industry links. InGenious project, Amgen programme

24 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Forms of employer involvement with schools Burge, B., Wilson, R. and Smith-Crallan, K. (2012)

25 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Successful employer involvement with schools Communication Curriculum Needs based Vision Collaboration & connections Leadership Flexibility Programme design Early intervention Time & capacity Burge, B., Wilson, R. and Smith-Crallan, K. (2012) Build successful partnerships…

26 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs Jurisdictions need to … Work with stakeholders to: establish goals that are realistic and accountable; create an environment in which productive partnerships can develop and flourish; support interventions that are appropriate to the existing situation; encourage greater collaboration.

27 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So why engagement, enrichment and enterprise? All part of a process

28 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So why engagement, enrichment and enterprise? ENGAGEMENT: initiating involvement; stimulating curiosity; defining the problems and objectives; building on existing knowledge and experience.

29 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So why engagement, enrichment and enterprise? ENRICHMENT: exploring possibilities; understanding the context; recognising and respecting different perspectives; embracing complexity.

30 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs So why engagement, enrichment and enterprise? ENTERPRISE: finding solutions; testing applications; exploring innovations; maximising benefits and returns; scanning horizons for new opportunities.

31 Intel ISEF Educator Academy Intel ® Education Programs ….and finally, are we pulling in the same direction? That is for YOU to decide…but we are on our way and as stakeholders we should continue working together to: share and support a common vision for STEM education which meets the needs of ALL young people; develop policies and implementation strategies that transcend short-term cycles and commit to the long-term future of STEM education; establish a sustainable, flexible and responsive framework for STEM education with measurable and realistic goals.
