Integrating STEM into Technology Education Programs
Abstract: How do K-12 schools, colleges and universities respond to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) initiatives that have become a national priority? A Wisconsin high school and university are responding to changes in education policies by using a proactive approach that focuses the development of quality programs. Menomonie High School’s technology education program and the University of Wisconsin-Stout’s (UW-Stout) technology education teacher preparation program incorporated Project Lead the Way (PLTW), a pre-engineering program with a STEM focus tied to standards in their programs.
