Hacking STEM: Modernizing and Democratizing STEM Education

The jobs of today will not be the jobs of tomorrow. Globally schools are being asked to prepare students with future-ready skills. However, to engage the leaders of tomorrow, teachers need access to the right materials today. These materials need to be easily obtainable, affordable and reflect the mandated academic standards that bring real-world scenarios and modern technical concepts into the classroom. In addition, traditional learning pathways don’t include concepts like getting started with IoT, working with data, machine learning or artificial intelligence.

In this talk, we present Microsoft Hacking STEM, a K-12 program that provides inquiry-based science, technology, engineering and math lesson plans written by teachers for teachers. These free, interdisciplinary lesson plans developed in partnership with STEM experts like NASA and BBC Learning support students building projects that integrate core academic concepts with hands-on experiences. Students are challenged to build sensors, analyze data, design in 3D, engage with mixed reality and work with a machine learning and AI module while solving real-world problems. Karon Weber will share how Hacking STEM is modernizing and democratizing STEM education and demonstrate some of the student-facing projects.
