STEM: Explore, Discover, Apply (STEM EDA) engages middle school students through a series of hands-on projects that help improve their problem-solving and critical thinking skills. All projects seamlessly integrate the Engineering Design Process which allows students to creatively explore STEM through design.
This multi-grade level curricula utilizes liberal arts disciplines to provide meaning and depth to the content. Through STEM EDA, students develop invaluable skills focusing on leadership, team building, creativity, and communication.
STEM EDA’s modular nature provides ultimate flexibility to schools. Teachers can implement the curricula as a standalone elective course, insert specific modules into an existing class, or provide the modules as an after-school program. STEM EDA is currently made up of twelve threads that are listed below. Additionally, each thread consists of three modules: Explore (6th), Discover (7th), and Apply (8th).
All of the STEM EDA modules are mapped to applicable Next Generation Science and Common Core State Standards.
