Abstract

Bay Minette Middle School (BMMS) is a public school that serves seventh and eighth grade students in rural southwest Alabama. Four years ago, BMMS began incorporating an informal Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) block into the instructional program by providing STEM elective courses and encouraging participation in STEM student organizations. This poster showcases BMMS’ recent efforts in creating a STEM block in a public middle school by discussing the use of scheduling, teacher and student collaboration, and competitive events for success in developing 21st century workplace skills.
