M-STEM³ Motorsports STEM for Manufacturing and Medicine

K-12 Resources

M-STEM is developing and piloting middle school curriculum modules aligned to Indiana and national academic standards. The M-STEM modules focus on motorsports as the context for teaching important 21st century skills and content knowledge through the use of problem-based learning. Students will work in teams to solve a challenge or develop a solution to a given problem.

The first M-STEM module will be ready for distribution in late spring 2015. The theme of the module is Transportation. Students are engaged in an exploration of IndyCar racing and their teams are challenged to develop their own race car prototype. Additional M-STEM modules are under development and are tentatively scheduled to be available during fall 2015.
