STEM Competition Research Methods for Middle Schoolers | Session 1
As children grow up in an increasingly technologically and scientifically advanced world, they need to be scientifically literate to succeed. Teaching scientific methods to students is teaching them how to think, solve problems, make informed decisions, and learn. These skills are integral to every aspect of a student’s education and life, from school to career.
The STEM research method class has two sessions. In the first session, students will work on hands-on projects in teams and learn the entire research process, including how to define a research problem, conduct a literature research, design an experiment, collect data, analyze data, and draw conclusions. In the second session, students will apply the knowledge gained in the first session to participate in selected science competitions.
The first session lasts 8 weeks, with 1-hour lecture and 30-min office hour per week. The second session lasts 8 weeks with 1-hour meeting for each team each week for participating in the eCYBERMISSION competition and 16 weeks with 30-min each person for participating in the 3M Youth Challenge.
