Hey, Ernie, as long as you are making announcements, why not tell 'em we are having a forum at Oshkosh? It is Thursday, 1:00 to 2:15 in the Homebuilders Hangar, just east of most of the forums. At last count, there were only five seats left!

Wow very cool, I hadn't heard about this and it's right in my back yard. And EAA Chapter. Seems like every meeting we've had lately, I've had to miss for some reason or another.

Not to get technical but it should be Puyallup, WA even though it's harder to say. Edgewood is quite a bit North of Emerald Ridge High School.

Default What is "STEM" based education?

Great question, Glen, and Bob provided the simple answer to the acronym; Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics. STEM based education is an innovative teaching method that's nationally recognized and a Google search of STEM based education or STEM based learning will reveal a wealth of historical information, white papers, and nation-wide success stories that will touch your heart.

In particular, I would like to direct attention to Project Lead the Way (PLTW), an organization that provides middle and high schools with engaging, hands-on STEM courses that prepare students to be innovative and productive leaders in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. Eagle's Nest -1 and -3 are currently being completed in PLTW Certified high schools, and while Eagle's Nest projects are well suited to any public or private school, Eagle's Nest fully supports and adheres to PLTW curriculum guidelines.

Hope this information has been helpful... and please take time to fully explore Project Lead the Way's website. Pretty cool stuff!

Bob, I've been trying to reach you to get the Eagle's Nest folks on my EAA Radio show at OSHKOSH, but your mail is bouncing back to me. Can you contact me, please at bcollinsrv7a@comcast.net?

Thanks
