We know that STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics. But it means more than that to us.
It’s about learning that draws on math and science concepts, experiences that incorporate teamwork, and activities that make appropriate use of technology and engineering methodologies. It’s about innovation.
And in our schools across the Cape and Islands, everyone is doing STEM differently.
Paula Hersey, an active member of Cape Cod Regional STEM Network, former President of Cape Cod Tech Council, and now the Director of Outreach with Cape Cod Community Media Center (C3TV) set out to share what STEM looks like on Cape Cod.
Her video—Explore the possibilities. Discover the opportunities—does just that.
Across six sites and school groups, including Bourne Public Schools Innovation Studio, Lawrence School in Falmouth, Mashpee Middle High School, Truro Central School students at the Cape Cod Maritime Museum, Dennis Yarmouth High School, and Monomoy Regional Middle School students at the Chatham Marconi Maritime Center, she observed how teachers, visitors, and students of all ages are engaging in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics—or perhaps more importantly, being innovators and problem-solvers and having fun! She has definitely captured the diversity of STEM across Cape Cod and the Islands.
The video does a great job promoting the STEM happening in schools on Cape Cod and the Islands—and we know that there is more going on as well. Stay tuned for the next installment!
