Real-World Application Of Skills

As you watch the skill video below, think about these questions:

  • How does the engineer use inquiry to help youth work through their robot design?
  • What is the engineer doing here that helps build youth identity as someone who can do engineering?
  • In what ways does the engineer act as a positive role model and help youth see themselves as someone who could do engineering for a career?

Now that you’ve watched the video, reflect on what you saw and post your responses.

  • Having a guest presenter or content expert is an excellent way to provide positive STEM role models for youth.  If you could provide 3 strategies to enable a positive experience between your guest and youth, what would they be?  (For example, model how they might use purposeful questions when working with youth)
  • What are strategies you use in your program to introduce youth to a diverse group of STEM role models?
