As current STOMP Fellows, Emma Rubin, E14, Hannah Garfield, E14, and Andrew Bennett, E15, more than understand the importance of multiple methods in teaching. From hands-on activities to written or spoken instructions, these fellows have done it all to teach K-12 students engineering and problem solving skills. This summer, they outdid themselves and created what may be the most creative and entertaining engineering video of all time to explain the different types of engineering–with Legos!
The Center for Engineering Education and Outreach‘s Student Teacher Outreach Mentorship Program (STOMP) program has been nominated for the Partnering for Excellence Innovations in Science + Technology + Engineering + Math (STEM) Education competition. STOMP seeks to create an engineering curriculum that reaches across all disciplines, piques K-12 student’s interest in engineering, and improves the student’s problem solving skills while preparing Tufts undergrads in the School of Engineering, as well as k-12 teachers, with the necessary tools to become educational change agents.
