Digital fabrication has the potential to transform k-12 education. With the SCOPES-DF project, the Fab Foundation is bringing together fabbers, makers, and educators to deepen our understanding of the “what”, “how” and “why” of STEM disciplines. SCOPES-DF is the first project of its kind to specifically develop effective pathways and resources for using digital fabrication in STEM education. SCOPES-DF offers educators new models and methods for teaching. It offers students relevant, engaging, applied learning opportunities.
Engineer Girl provides access to role models, examples of engineering achievements and possibilities, along with advice on preparing for engineering careers. But more than that, we share stories about how engineering is essential to our lives and how an engineering career provides a unique opportunity to make a difference.
Dig into these incredible resources and your students won’t be able to resist the exhilaration of STEM.
