Industry as a role model to inquiry-based method at school

I want to describe my experience of the STEM Discovery Week 2018. In addition to my job as a teacher, I also work as a teachers’ trainer at the Faculty of Science Education at Technion, the Israel Institute of Science and Technology.
During the STEM Discovery Week, I did an activity with pre-service teachers and students from the 9th grade, who came to Technion for a visit.

Renewable energy of the future

Hello!
My name is Stella Magid-Podolsky. I want to tell about my experience during the STEM Discovery Week at my school in Israel. The activity took place at the 8th grade.
During two days, students from the 8th grade science class learned, explored and checked alternatives to regular energy usage. Students were divided into teams, in which each team worked on a different source of renewable energy. On the second day of the activity, each team presented their research and outcomes to the audience of students and teachers.
The students’ reflection on this activity was great. This activity took place instead of a final exam and the students informed me that they liked this kind of assessment very much. During the activity, the students had a chance to express variety of skills, such as creativity, team work, brainstorming and presentation skills…..all skills that are so important in the 21st century.
Also, as a teacher, I enjoyed this activity very much!!!!!!
I had the chance not only be a transformer of knowledge, but also a mentor of every team.
Hope to do more activities as this one. The experience was great!!!

STEM is No. 5 for the Education Agenda according to IBE-UNESCO

Hello, guys!

Today is a very great day! First, my conference paper has been published in the Knowledge E publisher in relation to the International Conference on Southeast ASEAN studies. Here is the link: https://knepublishing.com/index.php/Kne-Social/article/view/2335/5164

You can read and learn about STEM applications in food, especially for ASEAN food marketing. Do you ever convey that the STEM movement could gather with industry sectors? Of course, starting today, you have to realise that it is possible!

The second point I want to mention, is that when I scrolled my Twitter feeds, I found IBE-UNESCO’s update about the Education 2030 agenda. This is the happiest thing for me and you too! Kindly check this out: inprogressreflections.ibe-unesco.org/15-clues-to-support-the-education-2030-agenda/

From the reflections, STEM is no.5 of the clues for the Education 2030 Agenda to foster sustainable development. I am feeling energised because STEM has a strong power to enhance education in the future. For instance, the STEM Discovery Week 2018 has become the meaningful agenda for applying sustainable education because STEM people could engage together and share their perspectives. That’s also the point of the clues’ implementation.

Therefore, I hope I can survive and strengthen my journey as a STEM teacher in Indonesia and widen my networking to create STEM Indonesia Ambassadors.

High-five for all the STEM people! Let’s collaborate without borders.
