Use cases to teach STEM concepts where students “own” their learning.
First pioneered at Harvard University, educators use the Socratic method in the classroom. Characterized by answering the question “why”, students are asked to solve a real problem with a school community, business or arts partner. Determining the primary challenge, reviewing alternatives, performing research, working in teams, doing analysis, discussing opportunities and presenting solutions are the essential learning methods.
PIE has had tremendous success bringing together STEM educators + business leaders in developing new hands on experiences driving critical thinking and career readiness skills.
