We understand, initiating STEM in your classroom can sound daunting if you haven’t already started and don’t know where to begin.
Before exploring how we can implement STEM, let’s recap what STEM means;
STEM stands for science, technology, engineering and math. We all teach Science and Math, but STEM adds Technology and Engineering into the equation in order to teach “21st-century skills” or tools students need to have if they wish to succeed in the workplace of the “future”.
The idea is that in order to be prepared for jobs and compete with students from different parts of the world, students need to be able to solve problems, find and use evidence, collaborate on projects and think critically. These skills and the thinking that goes with it are taught in STEM subjects.
So, now we know what STEM actually is. Where do I begin?
If you have already ordered your Fable classroom kit, you can easily begin here with a FREE FABLE lesson plan.
Some ideas on implementing STEM in the classroom:
Always remember, if it doesn’t go like you had planned, use that as a lesson too. STEM is all about trial and error. The students learn just as much, maybe even more during flops.
Shape Robotics would like to reward teachers using Fable in the classroom with a 100 euro Amazon gift voucher for lessons you have created, which are applicable to your peers. Simply submit your suggestion to us here in our contributor space!
