STEM Education

Many people lament that researchers and engineers work long, painful and laborious hours that see little products or innovations to fruition. Looking back at my secondary school days, I wasn't quite your bright spark of a science student. Physics was passable because I tried hard enough and Math was a breeze because of intensive practice.

For a sustainable STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) education, we have to allow students to be creative in classrooms, be experimental and even take a little risk. How do we excite students about STEM? What can we do as educators to truly encourage innovation from students?

Check out the Center for K12 STEM Education where students create hydroelectric power generator and make use of 3D-printing to unpack what they learn in the classrooms.
