Tips for Connecting to Prior Knowledge and Experiences in STEM
  • Connect the learning outcomes of the activity to them socially, culturally, or aligning it with what they are currently learning about in the school day.
  • Address current events or issues and community concerns with the STEM activity. For example, filtering pollutants out of water to address the community concern of clean drinking water.
  • Ask youth to solve a current problem in your community through the activity.
