STEM ,Innovation, Technology and Entrepreneurs Project
Once upon a time, a geek was the worst thing you could be. Now, tech-savvy youth are our future. You can foster a love of technology innovation and entrepreneurialism with this no prep, a week-long resource that can either be run as homework or a classroom task.
Train your students to imagine a better future and have the guts to pursue it? This inspirational, one-week project will encourage them to observe the world in greater detail, learn and use the vocabulary of progress, and appreciate the great things that the world’s thinkers and doers have provided them through technology. But this project doesn’t just focus on the present. Your learners will also have a chance to explore the potential of the future and begin to imagine how they can contribute to it.
They will approach this task from four perspectives:
1. What does it mean to think BIG, and how can we do that? 2. What famous inventions changed our world in the past? 3. What current technology is revolutionizing our lives right now? 4. How could we use technology to enhance our future?
We’ve included examples and instructions for each perspective, links to videos and multimedia, and an assessment rubric. The download contains a fully editable PowerPoint as well as a PDF version if you need a hard copy for handouts.
