Roskens Hall 402
The UNO STEM room will impact a generation of young people by influencing the long-term strategies of STEM educators. By providing educators, students and community members with a model environment to teach and learn STEM knowledge, skills, and concepts, this facility will provide the UNO College of Education with the opportunity to have a significant and lasting influence on STEM education for the community, region, and the world.
The room is a place where students engage in STEM content, not just talked about. It looks more like a room in a STEM industry rather than a classroom. The design of the facility, as well as the technology and exhibits within the facility, features hands-on equipment, real-time data feeds, demonstration materials, as well as a model for energy efficiency investigation. The items include:
- A state-of-the-art science laboratory
- An innovative hands-on mathematics learning facility
- Several display monitors to be used for science labs, mathematical simulations, data displays, and NASA connections
- Multiple interactive whiteboards to model active STEM learning and teaching
- Display devices in the classroom that provide real-time energy consumption feedback and showcase exhibits related to energy, such as a “light source exhibit” displaying energy consumption between different types of light sources
- A shelf of ready to use energy activities such as electronic snap kits, battery testers, and a range of ready-to-use classroom hands-on learning kits
- Robots to be used for STEM learning activities
