Welcome to a new DE weekly blog for STEM activities. As educators, we all crave those extra activities that inspire our students and ourselves. Community STEM is just that project. This project was born out of a conversation at Albuquerque’s DENapalooza and continued to grow through many late night texts between North Carolina (Dacia Jones) and Idaho (Kim Miller). The Community STEM blog is the perfect way to engage students in activities that will cause them to communicate, collaborate, create, and critically think. All activities will include a STEM challenge, digital media connections, a virtual field trip, and career opportunities. We would like to give a very special thanks to the members of the Discovery Educator Network who have graciously loaned their voices to many of the videos.
Each week we will post a new featured STEM activity that will allow you to help encourage teachers and students in the classroom. If you want still more STEM, you can continue on to www.communitystem.org where you will be able to upload your own labs, connect with educators, and search for activities that will help support your classroom.
