Global STEMprenuers
Oct. 22, 2014, 1 p.m. PT | 4 p.m. ET

"Global STEMprenuers," facilitated by Manorama Talaiver, director at Longwood University Institute for Teaching Through Technology and Innovative Practices (ITTIP) and presented by an esteemed panel of students.

Meet teenage scientists, inventors and designers who are passionate about innovative thinking and entrepreneurship during this interactive panel. The panelists will talk about their personal passion projects on topics ranging from environmental engineering and sustainability to hardware and software engineering. Find out what inspired these young STEMpreneurs to be global risk takers, then ask them questions and discuss strategies for motivating your own students.

Meet the student panelists:

Michelle Marquez, 15, is a high school sophomore from Chesterfield County, Virginia, who discovered the mathematical structure of sound that triggers emotions. Michelle spent two years searching for “a mathematical correlation between the fractal dimension of audio stimuli and the selective emotions induced by the stimuli” because she wanted to know what it is about music that affects people’s emotions. After discovering that music and some sounds in nature have a mathematical complexity that could be responsible for triggering specific emotions, she won the top prize in her grouping at the Intel International Science and Engineering Fair in Los Angeles, the 2014 Psychology Society Award and the Cultural Exchange Award at Intel ISEF.

Tenith Adithyaa 17, is a senior at Hindu Higher Secondary School, Watrap, Tamil Nadu, India. His research project, "A novel eco-friendly technology to keep the banana leaf green for 1 year without using any chemicals," has won several gold awards in international science and engineering competitions. Tenith plans to study engineering and continue his research at a U.S. university.

Inderjit Kaur, 17, a student at the Pusat PERMATApintar Negara center for gifted and talented students in Malaysia, has led a team through several successful robotics competitions. Her team’s Nanny Robot – which uses sound and temperature sensors to care for a baby by activating functions such as rocking a swing or contacting parents – won the gold medal at the 2012 International Symposium on Robotics and Intelligent Sensors.

Kailee Mitsuyasu, 15, is a sophomore at Mid-Pacific Institute, Hawai'i. Displaying a precocious talent in leadership, she lead her team to first place in a MPX Hydroponic Gardening Competition during her freshman year. MPX, Mid-Pacific Exploratory Program, is a project-based learning course that integrates English, history and STEM, and engineering into its educational philosophy. During that year, she expanded her knowledge on food security and its importance to Hawai'i, using and building hydroponics and high density gardening. As an aspiring architect and award winning mathematician, she's looking forward to becoming an engineer.

The Maker Movement: A Pathway to Innovation for STEM Learners
Nov. 12, 2014, 4 p.m. PT | 7 p.m. ET

"The Maker Movement: A Pathway to Innovation for STEM Learners,"presented by Josh Ajima, technology resource teacher, Dominion High School and Loudoun Academy of Science, Virginia.

Give students the power to learn by making. The maker movement fosters a mindset and culture that can create a profound shift in K-12 STEM learning. Explore how the right tools, such as digital fabrication, physical computing and programming, empower students in every classroom to innovate and solve real problems.

Turn STEM into STEAM
Dec. 3, 2014, 1 p.m. PT | 4 p.m. ET

“Turn STEM into STEAM,”presented by Marisol Garcia, AP Literature and Composition teacher, IDEA College Preparatory Alamo, Texas

STEM skills are not just for science and math classrooms! Discover how STEM becomes STEAM as you develop a project-based lesson plan around Mary Shelley’s novel Frankenstein. This step-by-step webinar will guide you through the entire process of planning this interdisciplinary unit, from preparing rubrics, lessons and assessments to guiding students through hands-on activities designed to help them find their own answers to a driving question. Activities include:

- Reading the novel

- Conducting science experiments

- Researching current uses of genetic manipulation

- Participating in a mock trial for the advancement of science

- Organizing a community science fair

By the end of this webinar, you’ll walk away with a concrete understanding of how STEAM and PBL can lead to deeper learning as well as a complete unit you can put into practice in your classroom.
