TCR’s Center for Advanced Research on Educational Assessment Technologies, in collaboration with the Academy of Information Technology & Engineering (AITE) High School, presented an invited paper on “Others may see someone eating a cookie — I see the start of a protein kinase cascade reaction”
This paper shares the authors’ experiences in Science-Technology-Engineering-Mathematics (STEM) from our respective vantage points as students, educators, researchers, and industry professionals. We share a passion for STEM subject matter, and a desire to encourage others to explore it as a way of enriching one’s life and society as a whole.
Abstract – In this paper, we explore influences that hinder and promote interest in STEM, and the resulting implications on what is needed to engage and retain students’ life-long interests. The importance of soft skills in developing STEM proficiency is also discussed.
