FLATE’s Wiki: Your One-Stop-Spot for Accessing Enriching, STEM-based Resources
One of the challenging goals for educators is to offer authentic learning activities, and to engage students with relevant content. This can be especially difficult for STEM instructors when the property, principle, or structure students are investigating can only be observed with advanced scientific instruments or specialized materials that are too costly for the ordinary classroom. FLATE’s Made in Florida lesson plans provide students with real-world scenarios relevant to high-tech manufacturers throughout Florida. Each Made in Floridalesson plan gives teachers the materials needed to engage students with authentic and sometimes unresolved challenges faced by manufacturers in the region, and provides print-ready resources such as handouts, worksheets,rubrics,timelines,and other educator supported material.
