The Student Enabled Network of Sensors for the Environment using Innovative Technology (SENSE IT) project will integrate STEM skills into a robust interdisciplinary curriculum and teacher development effort by teaching 3,000 high school students to design, build, test, deploy and interpret their own
The Network Science project is a three year ITEST strategies project designed to engage 120 disadvantaged high school students (grades 10-11) and up to 30 high school STEM teachers from Boston and New York urban schools in a network science research based program, using cutting edge computer
The COMPUGIRLS Scale-Up project utilizes a culturally relevant technology (CRT) program to prepare girls ages 13-18 from the Phoenix high needs district to enter the STEM workforce. This project builds on the successful NSF-funded COMPUGIRLS award (DRL 08-33773), which uses social justice-based
Animando a Estudiantes con Technologia (AET) - Encouraging students in the field of information technology
More than 175 rural and suburban Latino youth, grades 5-12, are engaged in structured, hands-on, out-of-school information technology (IT) education programs in conjunction with out-of-session “bridging activities.”
The proposed project is a three-year, longitudinal, multiple-method study that addresses questions about high school students' course-taking in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) or information & communication technologies (ICT). In particular, it focuses on the effects of STEM
A coalition of Carolina universities, school districts, state agencies, and businesses called the "Virtual World Consortium" are promoting the use of 3 dimensional immersive virtual technologies to teach STEM in middle schools.
The project uses Mobot (a modular robotics platform designed for K-12 education) to prepare teachers to engage students with relevant pedagogy that illustrates abstract math concepts with concrete applications using computing and robotics.
This comprehensive project for 45 middle and high school teachers (who will pass along their learning to 4,500 students) uses inquiry-based education developed from research projects at Moss Landing Marine Labs to teach biotechnology and IT skills. Participants learn how biotechnology is used to
With primary project activities completed in August, 2006, Ocean Explorers was a three-year project funded by the Information Technology Experiences for Students and Teachers program at the National Science Foundation (NSF) and implemented by the Center for Image Processing in Education (CIPE). The
The Design Loft STEM Learning Program is introducing 400 underserved middle school students in California to engineering careers. The goal of the program is to develop students' ability to define and create solutions for real world problems by using "design thinking." The program's learning
