Using Tech to Teach Art, Engineering, and Design in the Virtual Classroom

Posted by Hannah Olson on Oct 30, 2020 8:15:00 AM

Virtual learning environments are particularly tricky for engineering, design, and art teachers. Unless you can send packets of activity-specific supplies home with your students, you have to be flexible and work around the resources available in each student’s home, which can vary greatly. You can’t always rely on students having paints, construction paper, or popsicle sticks readily accessible. Even what were once household staples like paper-towel rolls may not be available in some eco-friendly households that only use reusable cloths. So how can educators provide a complete STEM course with these variables in mind?

STEM CAREERS: Cartographer

Posted by Hannah Olson on Oct 6, 2020 9:45:00 AM

Cartography is the science of collecting and interpreting geographic data and using it to create maps. This assists us with regional planning, emergency response coordination, traveling, land surveying, and both sea and space exploration. The individuals who possess the knowledge and talent to produce the maps we need are called Cartographers or Photogrammetrists.

3 Ways to Incorporate STEM with Distance Learning

Posted by Braydon Moreno on Sep 29, 2020 8:30:00 AM

The coronavirus pandemic doesn’t appear to be going anywhere anytime soon. Schools and educational institutions are preparing environments so that students can learn at home, should the need comes. This includes equipping them with the necessary technology to make the “virtual classroom” a reality. More often that not, STEM learning is not a focus in these virtual classrooms although it needs to be.

The Value of 3D Printer Tech in Learning

Posted by Melizza Cuizon on Aug 4, 2020 8:15:00 AM

Eons ago, when I was in primary school, my class did a unit on fossils and their importance on understanding how prehistoric plants and animals lived. I was fascinated and for a brief moment, I wanted to be a palaeontologist. I would stare at all of the pictures of the different fossils and dream about going on an actual dig and discover something amazing like a fossil from a mammoth or saber tooth tiger. Of course, I never did become a palaeontologist. Instead, I chose to teach because that feeling of excitement when I learned something new was one I wanted all young learners to experience. But I do wonder if my teacher had the technology to make different fossils for closer study maybe I would have chosen the palaeontology path.
