A note about your classroom library & science class: While all kids are naturally creative and curious, not everyone wants to be a scientist or engineer. Some students identify as arts-related or socially-related, not STEM-related. It doesn’t mean they aren’t interested in science, though.
Tech companies hire many people from non-STEM backgrounds to build the diverse teams needed grow strong companies. These include writers, artists, historians, communicators, analysts, lawyers, and specialists in law and human resources, to name some. The common thread among them all? A curiosity and interest in science.
The books on this list are a great way to engage all your students in science class and fuel their wonderful, big ideas! These stories will help them connect to science and the world around them by showing them the power of ideas and our own interests and talents.”
Getting students to connect with, and see value in, their ideas is a critical piece of all learning. This is especially true for teaching STEM. Open-ended innovation prompts and challenges are a great way to foster this kind of learning environment. The attached PDF file provides a number of open ended prompts that are suitable for students of all ages.
