Over two hundred grade 8 rural youth in New Hampshire and Maine schools will analyze and model extreme weather events on Mount Washington and in their local communities with big weather data, online data tools, and support from weather scientists.
This project will advance efforts to understand and promote practices that increase students' motivations and capacities to pursue careers in STEM by preparing students in high need middle schools for science and math courses, and engineering careers.
A working group of K-12 teachers and AI experts from academia and industry are developing national guidelines for teaching artificial intelligence in K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grade bands, and creating an online AI resource directory.
Overview of the Program The Lens on Climate Change (LOCC) program engages middle and high school students in film production documenting the effects of climatic and environmental changes on their lives and in their communities. Middle and high school students are paired with graduate and undergraduate student mentors to research, film, edit, and ultimately screen their films and participate in a panel discussion. Each student group (4—6 students) is guided by both a science and a film mentor through the completion of the project.
DRIVING QUESTION: If you find a fossilized skull, what clues tell you if it is a mammal or reptile? LEARNING GOALS: Learning goals are for students to collect, analyze and interpret data found in 3D printed fossil skulls. Students will be able to understand what type of information fossils can provide, including the environment where animals lived and the type of food they ate. In addition, they will have a better understanding of how much information can be found from past events regardless of size and or/time periods.
Students will go outdoors to observe and document the water cycle in motion where they live. Students will also discover how they and their community impact not only the movement of water through the cycle, but also the water quality.
STEM Mio aims to impact students, family and the community by engaging students in inquiry-based STEM learning, educating entire families on STEM careers and Latino role models, and preparing students for college pathways to STEM careers.
Latinos make up the youngest and fastest growing demographic in the US but remain underrepresented in STEM professions. While clearly capable, Latino students often lack familiarity with potential STEM careers, Latino STEM role models, and the college resources available to them.
This game narrative is designed to help players understand the complexities in decision-making that exist in all communities, as they investigate and propose solutions to resolve a fish decline in a small national park. As a part of this experience, students take on the role of a scientific field investigator by interviewing stakeholders, conducting experiments on how water quality affects fish life, and collecting data. They will explore the scientific method to develop hypotheses about the park’s problem and pose possible solutions.
