|" If America is to maintain our high standard of living, we must continue to innovate. We are competing with nations many times our size. We don't have a single brain to waste. Math and science are the engines of innovation. With these engines we can lead the world. We must demystify math and science so that all students feel the joy that follows understanding." |
Dr. Micheal Brown, Director of the Jonsson Center for Molecular Genetics at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical School, Dallas Texas
The goal of STEM+C is to bring STEM+C (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math + Creativity) into classrooms across the Country. Big projects inspired our Nation to do great things in the 1960’s during the Space Race. STEM+C takes challenging projects into the classroom to anchor all areas of study to a common goal. The Program is designed to inspire creativity, develop problem solving skills, critical thinking and bring awareness to the inter-relatedness of all things.
STEM+C uses hands-on projects to anchor STEM concepts to the teaching curriculum in the school. Anchoring all areas of study to a common goal gives cross-relevance between subject matter. This has proven to be very effective at enhancing critical thinking and problem solving skills.
