Here is the plan for how I am going to start doing more STEM this year, without giving up too much time. I want to plan a STEM activity for each quarter. I want to do the same activity two times, to bring in the redesign aspect of the engineering process. I figure if I do the activity once, and my science teacher does it the second time, then that will cut the time needed to implement. Then I want to use this data as my way of teaching statistics, and percent change. Maybe over time I will think of more curriculum ties, but that is where I will start.
Anyway, here's to more STEM activities this year....and not just the M!
