Product Description
Many students are learning about the importance of STEM (Science,Technology, Engineering, and Math) or STEAM (Science,Technology, Engineering, Art, and Math) education, but they are not getting a great deal of time to participate in healthy discussions about the status quo. In order to promote literacy across the curriculum, increase effective verbal communication skills, and encourage problem solving and critical thinking, we must get students speaking with each other about what matters most. Socratic discussions are how we bring “hot topics” to STEAM.

Two of the biggest challenges in education today include motivating students to want to learn STEM subjects and increasing diversity of the graduates in those subjects. There has been a great push from the government, corporations, parents, and the education system to use a STEM based curriculum. However, not much has surrounded what students say they want. The purpose of this activity is to spark real discussion among students while getting them to read, research and think critically.
