How are we going to inspire students to be excited about learning Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math?Dr. Roderic Brame shares:
Dr. Brame is an expert in providing positive, engaging, and meaningful experiences in STEM for schools across the country. He leads by example and spends many days in elementary school classrooms giving inspiring STEM lessons for students. He is a product of Radford University and Virginia Tech and has taught many Science Methods and Integrated STEM education courses at the undergraduate and graduate level. Establishing programs that inspire innovation, invention, and Engineering Design in K-5 education are key initiatives advocated by the National Academies of Science, Engineering, and Medicine. Dr. Brame incorporates these initiatives in cutting edge efforts to optimize STEM education at every level of teaching and learning. Elementary school is an especially important level to engage students in inquiry and design thinking because they are some of the most intellectually developing years. These wonderful and valuable experiences have the potential to advance student achievement especially in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
