NSF INCLUDES Virtual Convening 2021: Multimedia Showcase

STEM in Your Home 

07-30-2021 03:42 PM

When the pandemic shut down plans for in-person meetings and STEM month events, the LiFE (Leadership and iSTEAM for Females in Elementary School: NSF grant #1744490) project that works with STEM clubs, especially for girls, in grades K-6 pivoted and had its New Jersey Institute of Technology (NJIT) undergraduate STEM role models make videos and accompanying activity plans that participants could take part in from home. These ‘STEM in Your Home’ events are livestreamed and provide a hands-on learning experience to foster participation in STEM by sharing STEM experiences and virtual tours students and their families can enjoy at home. The demonstrations usually use materials commonly found at home so viewers can work along with us. During the livestream, students can ask questions of our team and learn about why they are pursuing STEM degrees. The videos and activities allow for engagement in hands-on Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics discovery and fun. The project’s STEM for ALL video will showcase the project and several of the videos that have been presented. Among projects presented through STEM in Your Home are: a tandem jump with the US ARMY Golden Knights (gravity and air resistance), Chemistry in the Kitchen and Properties of Water. The videos and activity plans will be accessible through the NJIT STEM for Success website stemforsuccess.org.
