The STEMIE Coalition’s Invention Convention Curriculum. It’s FREE!
The STEMIE Coalition’s Invention Convention Curriculum presented by Stanley Black & Decker will be launched at the beginning of June 2018. The curriculum is divided into four grade ranges: K-2; 3-5; 6-8 and 9-12. It follows the 7 steps of the Invention Process: Identifying, Understanding, Ideating, Designing, Building, Testing, and Communicating.
The Invention Convention Curriculum is open access, so EVERY student K-12 may have access to it. “Open Access” means that while STEMIE does not charge for the curriculum, we do vet all the curriculum and author new pieces with curriculum experts regularly to ensure the content is aligned with Common Core and Next Generation Science Standards.
It is The STEMIE (STEM + Invention + Entrepreneurship) Coalition’s belief that while not all Inventors are Entrepreneurs and not all Entrepreneurs are Inventors, these two pillars of Innovation (Inventing + Entrepreneurship) are closely aligned and are necessary skills sets in which all students should be immersed in order to create a more innovative, empathetic, and productive workforce of tomorrow.
If your organization would like to contribute to this National Invention Curriculum, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
