National STEM League - Student Goals and Academic Glue

Through the National STEM League, an organization for future professionals, students collaborate, create and compete as business owners or teams specializing in motorsports, rover robotics, addressing the challenge of fueling society (energy) or combining software and hardware to innovate new things. In this session, participants will discuss strategies to ensure students see relevance to their personal goals in the lessons learned everyday and will hear how to motivate students from different academies to work together toward a long-term, shared goal.

Relevant...Exciting & Motivating - something for every student to own Ten80’s Design Principles Summarized
  • 13. Design Principles for Ten80’s STEM Projects & Events 1.Real’ish. Students can sniff out a contrived scenario. 2.Relevant. Students need the opportunity to craft personal goals within a team. Relevance means it is meaningful to the student, not just to the world. 3.Rigorous. Building stuff, though fun, is not necessarily learning. 4.Open-Ended. A complete beginning and end to projects does not reflect reality. How a project continues into the future, even if there is not time to do that work, must be clear. 5.Collaborate. Create. Students must have the opportunity to do both. 6.Content & Concepts. Though the process of inquiry is key to the PBL experience, content standards and key concepts must be illuminated as well. 7.Math Modeling. Mathematics is a gateway course. If students understand mathematics, their education and career options are exponentially greater. STEM projects are quantitative in nature, with students identifying performance goals that are measurable and therefore math modeling is key to successful implementation. 8.Pride in Presentation. Students present work to an audience outside of their team. 9.Enough… Educators who are usually not content specialists need curriculum assistance that gives them the confidence to teach in new ways. 10.… but Not Too Much. The curriculum must also offer ample opportunity for customization based on student interest and on local/regional realities. Ten80’s Driving Forces in Detail © 1080 Education, Inc.
