Focus on STEM

I’ve been thinking about the STEM projects that I’ve come across lately.  Just with anything, some of them are engaging and dynamic, some and mediocre and some are in the middle.  They all seem to have something in common though- they all lean very heavily on the S (science) in STEM.

In most STEM projects, a science concept/phenomena carries the theme and math seems to, for the most part, fall to the way-side as students investigate some sort of scientific phenomena. That’s never a bad thing, but why can’t math be in the spotlight for a change?

With that in mind, this series is dedicated to STEM projects with a capital M!  Join me next week for our first math-centered STEM project!
