Elementary School STEM Science Units - STEM units should focus on active, guided learning rather than lecture or text based learning. Collaboration is encouraged, and there are always multiple ways to reach the end-goal of STEM activities. Students should be given time to reflect on their thinking processes after their activity is done.
Teenagers interested in robotics or engineering degrees should learn to program their robots - There are some that have known since day one that they wanted to be a doctor, pastor, counselor, or coach, and there are many others that will go through changes on their journey into the workforce. But for those (few) young men and women that choose robotics or engineering as their majors, the future is looking bright.
