IMMEX Fayette Consortium: Community Integrated Problem Solving
Forty 7th–12th grade students and 86 teachers in Lexington, Kentucky worked on IMMEX problem solving teams construct interactive, problem-solving simulations.
The IMMEX Fayette Consortium is a comprehensive project for urban students and teachers that provides students in grades 7–12 with a solid foundation in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. This is a community-integrated model in which teams of teachers, students, business partners, and higher education faculty construct interactive, problem-solving simulations integrating standards-based curricular content and technology issues commonly encountered in STEM careers in technology institutes for teachers and students. The institutes occur during the summer and during the school year, and they are followed by integration of technology and IMMEX (Interactive Multi Media Exercises) problem-solving during the school year.
