CLASSROOM AND SCHOOL IMPACT
My experiences with the STEER Program
have made clear to me that the unique design, build, test and revise aspects
of engineering are seldom, if ever, taught at the high school level. I am interested
in integrating these aspects into the high school curriculum. I plan to have
the following impacts on my classroom and school:
- Students will use the Graphic
User Interface I developed to check their hypotheses comparing the different
current flows in series and parallel circuits.
- Students will write technical
papers following the protocols I learned in this program when they present
research projects in my classroom.
- I will develop a computer programming
course at my high school that will enable students to apply programming to
solving engineering problems.
- Students will attend a
field trip or open house to Cal State Los Angeles to view the work of their
- I will work with the math teachers
to develop a unit that connects math and science to solve engineering-related
