High School STEM/Engineering Instructor (#1565274)
Instructor will prepare students for STEM careers through Engineering by Design, an integrative STEM curriculum that uses all four STEM content areas (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) as well as English-Language Arts to help students understand the complexities of tomorrow in an authentic, problem/project-based environment. Students will study components of the designed world, including Engineering Design, Graphics and Spatial Skills, in which students develop the ability to communicate different information of technical drawings and display and understanding of geometric construction; Cybersecurity, in which students learn how to keep their digital lives safe and spot cyber scams; Biotechnology, which has become entrenched in our daily lives in ways that we do not even realize; Information Technology, including modeling and prediction based on visualization of data and testing design; and Robotics, in which students learn how robotics and automation technologies have a significant impact on our daily lives.
Communication skills and computation skills are essential. Students will learn problem solving, decision-making, and how to work in a team environment. Emphasis on work-based learning, implementation of training for AutoDESK Inventor industry certification, and participation in dual enrollment with partnering postsecondary institutions are essential elements of this program.
