Defined STEM at Grant Wood AEA

My list of learning goals for the summer continues to grow. One item is a new resource from Grant Wood AEA - Defined STEM (not sure if other AEAs are looking into this or not).

As explained on the site "Defined STEM is a web-based application designed to promote rigorous and relevant connections between classroom content, highlighting STEM content and real-world applications including career pathways, thus providing learning opportunities for students. Defined STEM provides teachers a resource where they can access highly effective media content and valuable resources to enhance the teaching and learning within the classroom. These resources and materials allow teachers to connect STEM with existing lessons, interdisciplinary content, and standards-based curriculum"

Grant Wood AEA will also host an half day workshop this summer (limited to schools in the GWAEA - sorry other AEA folks).
