Abstract

SENAET is a study on the effectiveness and the effects of a STEM subject class for the three main levels of public education: Elementary-, Middle-, and High-School. Undergraduate students from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU) will assume the role of teachers, instructing public school students in Micro-Electronics Prototyping, electronics hardware and software class developed by Prometheus Education, Inc. The student-teachers will use the lesson plan and electronics kit to create new lesson plans appropriate for all three levels of public education. The final report will include an analysis of the progress and attitudes of all participants. One goal of this study is to better determine the challenges, techniques, and special considerations for teaching young students a relevant and meaningful STEM class; while also providing valuable experience to the undergraduate students involved, strengthen the ties between ERAU and local schools, and further the field of STEM pedagogy for K-12.
