STEM Resources for your classroom

Want to know what's new in STEM resources? We have a Facebook page devoted to engineering and STEM that we update several times a week. It's great way to keep up with all the opportunities and resources that are available. Go to: https://www.facebook.com/GetCaughtEngineering and like our page to be part of our community. And if you would like a ready to go free STEM lesson to try out, we have several on our website. Wendy Goldfein and Cheryl Nelson Get Caught Engineering http://www.getcaughtengineering.com

I always enjoy visiting Wendy and Cheryl’s Get Caught Engineering website, http://www.getcaughtengineering.com/ for new ideas. I am beginning a new school year in a few days and stumbled back on “Saving Fred.” http://www.getcaughtengineering.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/Engineering-Energizer-Save-Fred-Update-1-21.pdf I bought gummy snakes and lifesavers from the Dollar Tree, have paper clips and plastic cups, and the story in hand. Now I just have to stand back and let my students apply what they know to save poor old Fred. For those of you unfamiliar with the scenario: (This is taken from Get Engineering website.) “Save Fred Fred has been enjoying boating on the lake but he frequently forgets to put on his life preserver. He never learned to swim and disaster has struck. Fred’s boat has capsized! He was able to crawl on top of his boat but as luck would have it, his life preserver is under his boat. Fred needs your help to not only reach the life preserver but to put it on so he won’t drown. You and your partner will each receive one paper clip. You may touch the boat, life preserver and Fred with only this paper clip. At no time may you injure Fred by stabbing him. If you drop him, he has drowned and you must start over.” I am curious though how they will solve the problem. I am sure I am overthinking it, but would love to know what your solution would be.

Wendy Thanks so much for sharing this site. I checked it out and found it very useful. To all out there, I'm curious to know what type of STEM materials/resources/kits you all think are MUST have in your elementary classroom or lab - I teach science/STEM grades 1 to 6th -- that's not too costly or complicated for both teachers and students.

NSTA's free and archived WebSeminars contain a wealth of STEM ideas, activities, links and slides to personalize your classroom presentations!

% and Volume: Space Food and Nutrition - How Much is Waste?

NASA and NSTA are hosting a 90-minute live professional development WebSeminar for educators on Jan. 21, 2014, at 6:30 p.m. EST.

You will learn how to guide your students through three mathematical problems to determine the mass and volume of a food package before and after repackaging for spaceflight, and determine the usable and waste portions of food selected for spaceflight. The problems provide opportunities for incorporating national mathematics learning standards into the curriculum and address grades 5-8 Common Core State Standards, Mathematics.

I LOVE the NSTA NASA and NES webseminars! They contain so many great ideas for lesson plans and after school clubs. While the archived format is informative and worthwhile, I highly recommend attending a live webseminar. Live webseminars offer the participants an opportunity to interact with the presenter and fellow participants. You can ask questions in real time, and participate through the chat function with other participants as you explore ways to bring the lesson into your classroom together. Here is a link to register for any upcoming webseminars: http://learningcenter.nsta.org/products/webseminars.aspx Here is a link to the archived webseminars: http://learningcenter.nsta.org/products/web_seminar_archive_sponsor.aspx

In addition to this resource, I also found a website while doing my own STEM research to present to my class. It is called ionfuture.org where students can play games to learn more about many STEM careers.
