STEM-Econ: The Incorporation of Economic Concepts into the STEM Projects
The interactions between science and society can be observed through social, cultural, and economic changes occurring at a rapid pace in society. Economics is a way to demonstrate how science interacts with society. The importance of integration of economics into science curriculum as one of the disciplines in social and behavioral sciences is emphasized for an informed 21st century citizen in the national standards. When engineering is involved in the integration of science, technology and mathematics some concepts related to economics are expected to be understood by students. This presentation features some activities for STEM teachers to use economic concepts in their project-based studies.

Implementing the Engineering Design Process in Your Classroom
The engineering design process is iterative and can explicitly teach problem-solving skills. We will address all five steps in the design process (define, represent, plan, implement and evaluate) with an emphasis on two often skipped steps, represent and evaluate.

Force and Motion: Deeper and Cheaper
This session uses a research-based learning progression to teach force and motion using cheap and familiar materials. Learn to “teach the laws for less” and leave with effective and captivating activities, interactive demos, design projects and assessment activities that develop deeper understanding using Claims, Evidence, Reasoning and Rebuttal for sense making. These activities, aligned with the NGSS scientific and engineering practices, are drawn from Kent State University’s Operation Physics, a program for in-servicing teachers Grades (4-9).

Go Green! Renewable Ethanol Makes the Difference!
Use the engineering design process (from EIE) to create ethanol in the classroom. Teach students how renewable fuels provide cleaner air, energy security, and save water. This issue-based lesson provides students with a simulation and facts that will enable them to answer the debate: Food vs. Fuel. Free ethanol fuel test kit will be given by the Ohio Corn Marketing Program.
