Put your Simple Machines Knowledge to Work to Better Learn STEM Concepts using LEGO®
The hands-on solution allows students to predict, test, observe, measure, record and present their findings. In this way, they work as young scientists, engineers and designers, making their own discoveries along the way. Even the least science oriented educators will feel secure teaching these standards and concepts with LEGO®.

Project WET

Project WET is a curriculum which focuses on water education for teachers (WET), students, parents and community leaders. The curriculum offers 60 plus hands-on and interdisciplinary activities that educate about water and water issues with minimal supplies and funding needed. For the 2016 SECO Conference, we will offer session participants the Project WET Sampler, which has 7 of the 60 activities described above. We will also provide Healthy Water, Healthy People (HWHP), which is the middle/high school secondary curriculum module to the Project WET Guide. HWHP offers 25 hands-on activities involving water related issues, health and aquatic insect education for students and adults.

The Value of Scientific Explanations for STEM Literacy
The Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) framework is a way for students to explain, in a scientific way, how their observations and data from an investigation are connected to science knowledge. Using CER provides a scaffold for building scientific literacy through expository writing.
