A Quiet Crisis, Shirley Ann Jackson

Pathways to STEM fields

Current situation of STEM pathway in OR

Areas to Consider for effective STEM programs

Proven Principles

Example programs

Science and Engineering Degrees are falling

Education Levels and Disciplines

Engineering & Applied Science Ideal Condition in Oregon

Engineering & Applied Science Actual* Condition in Oregon

Initial view of Engineering Education Pathway

 

Areas of Consideration Motivation: Motivating students to become interested in technical careers and take the courses required to prepare for these careers. Preparation: Helping students prepare for advanced work in engineering by assuring the right high-quality courses and facilities are available to them. Transfer: Increasing the ease of moving from one level to another and one institution to another while retaining credit for courses taken and making continuous progress towards well-paying jobs that contribute to Oregon’s economy. Retention: Assisting students in succeeding at each level and remaining motivated to continue with the path they have chosen. Diversity: Assuring that opportunities are available to students regardless of gender, race, or economic background.

Program Goals & Objectives To encourage girls ages 12-15 to consider careers in engineering and technology , and take the appropriate " gate-keeper" math and science courses in high school. Offer girls the opportunity to work on real world problems through interactive, collaborative, and team-based environments. Introduce girls to a wide variety of engineering and technology based activities and related careers. Encourage mentoring partnerships between girls and female role models active in the computer science, engineering and technology community. Spark an interest in engineering through design projects developed by the girls, based upon needs relevant to their lives and experience. Help girls have fun while developing skills and interests that will help them determine career paths. Encourage girls' participation in local or regional science fairs in the engineering category.

TOYchallenge is A national toy design challenge for 5th-8th graders. A chance for teams of imaginative kids to create a new toy or game. Toys are a great way to learn about science , engineering , and the design process ! As girls and boys create a toy or game, they experience engineering as a fun, creative, collaborative process , relevant to everyday life.

TOYchallenge is

A national toy design challenge for 5th-8th graders.

A chance for teams of imaginative kids to create a new toy or game.

Toys are a great way to learn about science , engineering , and the design process !

As girls and boys create a toy or game, they experience engineering as a fun, creative, collaborative process , relevant to everyday life.

This camp is designed to introduce girls to the fun of engineering through hands-on design projects in areas such as Theme Park Engineering Engineering in Music, Toy and Game Engineering, Cosmetic Engineering, Engineering in Sports and Fashion, and Environmental Engineering. Each project has a connection to a real-life engineering problem and gives students the opportunity to design a tangible solution to take home.
