Implementing “INTEGRATED SCIENCE: ENERGY”

Abstract

"There is a critical demand for qualified STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) graduates to meet the national economic demands. Community colleges are addressing this need through partnerships with K-12 schools, universities, and industry. Collaborative initiatives include: aligning and developing relevant curricula, addressing competencies, and faculty professional development. Roxbury Community College developed and implemented a new highly successful course Integrated Science: Energy. This is a student-centered college level integrated science (physics, chemistry and biology) laboratory course with the cross-cutting concept of energy. We aspired to align the course with the Next Generation Science Standards in K-12, facilitate meaningful connections across science subjects, and motivate students (non-science, education majors) for continued interest in science (STEM). Students want more of this class!"
