STEM Road Map Series
What if you could challenge your primary, middle years and high school students to use what they have learnt about science, technologies, engineering and mathematics to solve a variety of fun and engaging problems? With the STEM Road Map Curriculum Series, you can!
Each book in the STEM Road Map Curriculum Series outlines a journey that will steer your students toward authentic problem-solving while grounding them in integrated STEM disciplines. The series is designed to meet the growing need to infuse real-world learning into F–12 classrooms.
Each book is an interdisciplinary module that uses project- and problem-based learning, and features an exciting array of problems linked to a central topic:
Amusement Park of the Future draws on your students’ previous experiences with amusement parks or carnival rides, asking them to create blueprints of models, build and test small-scale prototypes, and develop cost–benefit analyses for their own parks.
Construction Materials gives students an inside look at the complex technologies and science behind the buildings they may take for granted. They will also learn how high-rise buildings are constructed, their influence on society and how to communicate complex ideas clearly.
Harnessing Solar Energy calls on students to Investigate potential and kinetic energy, solar energy, the greenhouse effect and salinity. Students will examine solar energy’s potential and limitations while being introduced to the concepts of scarce resources and potable water.
Transportation in the Future requires students to inquiry activities in science to learn about magnetic interactions and use mathematics to calculate distances and time intervals. They will also develop a conceptual understanding of innovations in train technology, with a focus on maglev (magnetic levitation) trains.
Wind Energy asks students to investigate the interactions of Earth’s systems, including geography, weather and wind. They will learn how Earth’s spheres – including the lithosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere and biosphere – interact and how to observe and measure them.
