My team and I have been collaborating with K-12 STEM teachers for three years. Our aim is to enable teachers to be agile educators who can lead in and out of the classroom through various strategies such as curriculum innovation and project-based learning.
This effort takes shape in the PTC STEM Certificate program which is a graduate-level training program focused on best practices in education and industry. Recently we hosted a capstone challenge for the course. Using the content and skills they learned from 8 weeks of training they designed and presented concept plans for a smart, connected prosthetic for use in alpine sports activities. We had a blast and this experience was captured in a video that I would like to share with you.
