STEM Education Ideas

Frank Noschese is a high school teacher of Physics and Chemistry. This April, 2012 TEDx talk (about 15 minutes):

What's the difference between a scientist and a student?

advocates "Modeling" as the basis for STEM instruction.

I think my favorite part was his demo of the use for science text books in the classroom. I also liked the per-group presentations of results. I'm sure that provokes some great discussions among the groups.
