Getting young students excited about and involved in STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) at the primary and secondary school level is critical – its one of the keys to shifting them from being a group that knows the basics of new technology to a group that knows how to harness technology to create and innovate.
Through a variety of programs and tools, Google hopes to make STEM learning engaging for primary and secondary students and inspire the next generation of big ideas.
Come learn about the various Google tools designed specifically to encourage students to study STEM subjects and learn about the various careers that await them in these fields. Topics of conversation will include:
• MIT App Inventor • Google Science Fair • YouTube Space Lab • Google’s Exploring Computational Thinking website • Khan Academy video library • Advanced Google Search • Google Scholar • Google Books • Google Earth • Google SketchUp • YouTube for Schools • Google+ for Educators •
A wealth of Google tools, apps and websites are available at no charge to STEM teachers and their students. Learn how to utilize these in your classroom to meet your curricular needs.
