STEM and STEAM friends I need your support! Vote for my session “Shifting STEM From a Noun to a Verb” for South by SouthWest Edu (SXSW-EDU) 2019 over the next month! https://panelpicker.sxsw.com/vote/84201
Abstract: STEM is going through a dramatic shift as industry and employer’s needs are changing at an exponential rate. The past needs of industry for content expertise have pivoted as information is more readily at our fingertips and there is a growing dire need for employees with critical 21st century skills. For our students to be successful in their future endeavors, we need to change STEM’s meaning from four siloed disciplinary letters to an innovative way of thinking and interacting with the world.
