Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math.
These projects are designed for students to work collaboratively on solving a problem that focuses on the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and/or Math. As the students work on these projects, they focus on the idea that they must make a plan or blueprint that they think will solve the problem. Each member of the group must participate and their ideas must be valued. Once a plan is in place, they actually work together to construct their solution using the assigned limited resources. In this process, it is OK if things don't work out they way they expect. They redesign and reconstruct based on what they experience, observe, and learn in this process.
