173. Curriculum, Undergraduate Research and Social Responsibility

by Jen Grant

An undergraduate education in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) is increasingly complex, and expensive Yet, students often do not understand the relevance of their coursework to their ideal career until it is too late. Faculty ,as mentors, have the opportunity, and the responsibility, to educate students in the relevance and applicability of the basic STEM curriculum, particularly basic chemistry and physics courses, which provide the foundation for understanding many modern topics. This paper presents assistant biology professor Jen Grant's efforts to craft a mentored research experience using MALDI -TOF MS to excite students about the importance of basic chemical and physical phenomena. This approach aligns academic curricula with real-world experiences, in an effort to demonstrate the kinds of problem solving enterprises that lie at the heart of world improvement and societal evolution.

176. Workshop-Helping STEM Students with Disabilities Persist

by Deery, Kathleen; Lawler, Michael; McCullough, Laura; Larson, Gracia

Workshop Presentation on Helping STEM Students Persist; presented at the ASQ 2012 Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference. Presented by Kathleen Deery, Michael Lawler, Laura McCullough, faculty at UW-Stout and Garcia Larson, Minnesota State SErvices for the Blind. The rate of success for students with disabilities in postsecondary STEM programs is disproportionately low, despite continual efforts to change this. One of the primary reasons that students with disabilities drop out of STEM majors is a “disconnect” between student and faculty expectations regarding ability, communication, resiliency, and reasonable accommodations. Students report doing poorly in part because they feel faculty lack of awareness of the need for accommodations in school learning environments or have lowered expectations of their success. At the same time, educators report feeling unsure of the fairness of requested accommodations or simply don’t understand the impact disability plays in a student’s education. T

192. Building STEM Partnership Teams- Presentation Handout

by Reis,Christopher

This is the presentation handout prepared by Christopher Reis, School District of Kettle Moraine (WI) for the ASQ 2012 Advancing the STEM Agenda Conference and is part of the conference proceedings.

Recently, partnerships designed to increase student achievement and interest in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) fields have become common. Partnerships have been developed between university departments, regional industry, youth organizations, and K-12 schools. Despite this, little guidance exists concerning how to create a team of industry partners to support K-12 STEM initiatives in suburban districts. The School District of Kettle Moraine has, during the last two years, established a partnership team including school personnel and local industry representatives. Techniques in recruiting potential partners, strategies for setting up meetings, and examples of partnership activities that have occurred in the district are discussed.

193. Learning What They Live

by Amanda Hankel

If you visited nearly any school in the United States today, you would find a “traditional” education model. A teacher usually stands near the front of the room, facing a class of about 20 students, presenting lectures and lessons, and administering exams to assess knowledge and comprehension. But at any school in the country, you’re also likely to find at least a few students who don’t seem to adapt to or excel in this traditional education model. What happens to these students? In this article, read about the Fontan Relational Education model, a self-learning, method that designs a personalized learning path based on each student's abilities, likes, dislikes, interests and unique learning rhythm.
