Abstract

This presentation describes Best Practices discovered via R&D done over 8 years on multi-media Mentor-Assisted Enrichment Projects [MAEPs] to promote Cooperative/Collaborative Learning while integrating Teaching/Learning. The presenter hopes to attract collaborators for multi-year projects that will become prototypes for implementation elsewhere. Why? Nearly all of the initiatives and research on enhancing STEAM Education have focused on just one or two challenges, such as: getting youth interested in STEAM subjects (mainly science and math); transforming undergraduate education; utilizing busy STEAM professionals as mentors. Indeed, each challenge is important because there is a shortage of persons in each group. My approach 1) links all three groups to create a STEAM Pipeline of Youth, who become STEAM Majors, who become competent STEAM Professionals, 2) combines formal and informal learning, 3) connects "learning about" STEAM with "learning how" it is applied, and presenting this.
