What can be done to excite students and teachers about STEM education? How to bridge the gap between school and out-of-school experience? A school-wide STEM day that engages students, teachers, and community members to solve authentic problems could be the solution.

This interactive session will walk participants along the schedule of a successful, best-practice and standards-based middle school STEM day from the first planning meeting to the closing assembly. The presenters include the principal of the school who led the planning committee, the 8th grade science teacher who led the implementation of the day, a member of the STEM Education Center who helped with the framework of the day as well as reaching out to community members, and a student who was engaged in her project long after the STEM day concluded.

A video will highlight parts of the day, and participants will be provided with a template to plan and draft their own STEM day.
