This organization has been an integral part of my STEM education career for over 4 years now. My school has been a member of the consortium for decades, and I currently represent them by serving on the national board of directors. Serving on the board and coming to national conferences is a fantastic way to meet STEM teachers and administrators from all over the country. Together, we can share ideas, collaborate on common issues, and network among our schools.
Tomorrow, I'm giving a talk at 4pm on how I'm incorporating the Maker Movement into my engineering curriculum. I'm just really excited to get to share what I've been up to in my classes, and hopefully spark some good discussions about what other teachers all over America are also doing in their classrooms! In the spirit of sharing, I'm also posting my presentation slides here so that anybody who wants to check them out can do so at their leisure. CLICK HERE to access the slides. Hey - sharing and collaboration is all part of the Maker Movement too!
