Learning with STEMStudents working on the computer

Defined STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) is the name of an online educational resource that Grant Wood AEA provides to schools in our GWAEA service area.


The tool explores STEM-based careers with  connections to literacy.


Students will participate in a Defined STEM performance, provides information about career options. What is a performance? This is a learning activity or assessment that invites students to demonstrate their knowledge, understanding, and proficiency.


Students take on the role of a professional in the STEM career to create products and deepen their understanding of what the career involves.


And the best part is that Defined STEM provides lessons that span grades K-12. Something for everyone!


We have created a collection of performance tasks, one at each of the following grade levels, K-2, 3-5, 6-8, and 9-12 grades. Click on the link below to access this week’s Defined STEM performance tasks.
