Aggie STEM is a collaboration between Texas A&M’s College of Education and Human Development and the College of Engineering.

Donation in honor of James B. Kelly

James Burton Kelly was the true embodiment of what it means to be an Aggie. His generosity and selflessness was displayed in every one of his actions. He constantly devoted himself to A&M and contributed to the STEM program. James has and forever will be a fightin Texas Aggie.

Mr. Kelly annually gave the gift of camp to academically talented children who were unable to attend camp because of financial reasons. Your donation will be used to continue his legacy and his tradition of giving back to the community while supporting his beloved institution Texas A&M University. Thank you notes will be sent to all donors acknowledging their gift and the Kelly family will receive a note acknowledging the total donated and list of donors.

Connecting the STEM Dots: Microprocessors and Electrical & Computer Engineering in the Classroom

June 5-9, 2017 at Texas A&M University

Microcontrollers for Educators will include an introduction to the basics of circuits, electricity, engineering, and computing using Arduino. The focus will be on activities and lesson planning strategies for implementing a project-based STEM teaching approach. Tools include the Processing programming language, the SparkFun Inventor’s Kit for Arduino, the Lilypad eTextiles line, and the SparkFun RedBot robotics platform.

This workshop is designed to give a basic foundation to start working with students in a focused project-based class relying on building skills in programming and engineering. It is appropriate for a wide range of educators, so all are welcome and encouraged to join us.

If you have specific project ideas or lesson plans, feel free to bring them. A large part of this workshop will be dedicated to developing activities and curriculum that will fit into your own classroom. Sharing of new ideas and projects is encouraged.

Professional Development Credit: This class provides 32 Continuing Professional Education (CPE) hours through a certified Texas Education Agency (TEA) provider.

In addition to an engaging hands-on professional development experience, participants will receive:

What to bring: Students are asked to provide their own laptop, several ideas to pursue throughout the class and food for brainpower or the means to go to a local eatery.

Cost: $800 per participant (includes $250.00 worth of “take home” classroom equipment)

Time: 9 AM – 5 PM (with a break for lunch from 12 PM – 1 PM)

Location: Texas A&M University

Prerequisites: This workshop is intended for instructors and educators who want to learn how to implement physical computing, programming, and electronics into their classroom. Participants need to have the physical dexterity to insert wires into a breadboard (the physical equivalent of inserting shoelaces into the holes in sneakers).

Invoices to districts can be made upon request. We will need to know if you are attending so we can prepare the lab kits and materials for you, so register by April 15, 2017.
