Add Some STEM

STEM has become a popular buzzword in education. But adding some STEM to any classroom doesn't need to involve special programs or funds. With a few simple ideas, some creativity, and a culture of collaboration at your school, you can add some STEM to any classroom, any grade, and any school. At the same time, you'll get your students excited about learning as they begin to see more connections between their learning and the real world. I've been recording a podcast entitled "STEM Everyday" for Remarkable Chatter for over a year, each episode highlighting ways that I and others have put STEM into the everyday classroom. The ideas range from having a "link of the day" that's a current event or website that relates to STEM in the real world, to encouraging English or history teachers to have students interview senior citizens or relatives to find out about the technology they've seen or experienced in their lives. I believe that every teacher is a STEM teacher. With a little motivation and direction, we can start to see the STEM around us and bring it into our classrooms.
