Hello STEM crusaders!
After months of hard work by our team here at STEM-Works we are thrilled to bring you the STEM-Works blog. Through our STEM endeavors over the last few years, we have been lucky to connect with many individuals in this vibrant community. We have talked with you face-to-face during our CSI programs and conference participation, interacted with you online through our Kids Ahead and STEM-Works websites and have become “friends” and “followers” through our social media accounts. After connecting with so many wonderful people, we really wanted to have a platform to better engage with you and to share exciting STEM content, ideas, and people. Enter the STEM-Works blog.
Our vision for this blog is two-fold. First, we have an exciting lineup of content that we’re excited to share. We will be connecting you with fabulous content on our websites, providing recommendations for how to incorporate this content into classrooms and afterschool programs, featuring a variety of guest bloggers from the STEM community (some of our cool jobs professionals will be stopping back in to say hi), and keeping you up to date on the goings on of our CSI program. This blog will take the content on the Kids Ahead and STEM-Works websites a step further by asking you to engage through stories of your experience with the content, ideas for modifying the content to make it more classroom-friendly and suggestions for new content.
Our second goal for this blog is to facilitate discussion among members of the STEM community. While the blog may have our name on it, we really want this platform to belong to you! We will touch on a number of STEM-related issues and topics, and we invite you all to participate in the conversation. We’re new to this, so tell us if you think something is awesome, or if you think something doesn’t work! After all, we’re all in this together!
Get ready to learn some cool things, discuss important topics and ultimately to celebrate the wonderful, wide world of STEM!
