Abstract

In the age of advancing space science and cyber technology, education systems throughout the world are finding different ways to make STEM a positive learning experience for the new generation. These new opportunities also require a new generation of teachers with new skills in managing student projects focusing on hard sciences in order to fully take advantage of the technology-enhanced learning affordances. This Best Practices session will introduce one such STEM program, Team America Rocketry Challenge (TARC), the world’s largest student rocket contest and a key piece of the aerospace and defense industry’s strategy to build a stronger U.S. workforce in science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM). The session will focus on the teaching skills required to promote meaningful student participation in hands-on STEM intensive activities and recommend ways in which these skills could be fostered in a teacher education curriculum.
