STEM education programs grow through staff development and teacher collaboration. One teacher can institute change in an entire district by sharing ideas, tools, and strategies that get students excited about coming to class. The information we learned at the 2010 Siemens STEM Institute changed the way we approach lesson creation, information delivery, and student assessment by introducing us to innovative tools and by opening our eyes to what is possible. Our students reap the benefits of our renewed enthusiasm and society benefits from theirs.
*As a component of the Siemens STEM Institute professional development program, Fellows work in small groups to collaborate on a STEM-related project throughout the following school year. These projects utilize the collaborative Web 2.0 tools that Fellows learn about during their week at the Institute to further student learning in the classroom. The project presented here is one of the projects done by a group from the 2010 Siemens STEM Institute Fellows.

Your presentation is a wonderful example for our school as we pursue the STEM focus for our Magnet School. I'm looking forward to thinking about the collaboration piece as a stepping stone for our beginning stages. Thank you for sharing your project for educators such as myself.
