This summer over 250 K12 students and teachers will participate in a dozen STEM education programs on the School of Engineering's campus. These programs have mobilized the University's faculty, graduate and undergraduate students in unprecedented numbers, and we are launching a social media campaign — #STEMNOW — to underscore the make-or-break importance of practicing scientists, engineers and technologists in providing high quality STEM education. We are making it happen, and know others are too: join the conversation, and show what is possible by using #STEMNOW in Tweets, Facebook posts and pictures and in other social media.
Watch this discussion with summer robotics researchers: undergraduate and graduate students from Prof. Vikram Kapila‘s Mechatronics Lab, high school students in our ARISE program, and middle and high school teachers in the National Science Foundation funded Research Experience for Teachers SMARTER program. They talk about their projects and creative ideas for interactive devices, as well as their views on the state of STEM education for K12 teachers and students..
