Noyce STEAM Pipeline Program Academic Requirements


Students working in a STEAM Lab

Coursework

Scholars will begin the accelerated adolescent science education program in May and complete all course requirements by the following June. In addition, Graduate Noyce STEAM Scholars will complete a two week paid internship at an informal learning center that engages students in K-12 STEAM education after graduation.

Coursework Unique to the Program

STEAM Laboratory I: STEM into STEAM
In this course students develop knowledge, skills and interest in STEM to STEAM. Co-taught by a science educator and an artist through an open-ended, collaborative class structure, scholars will explore and tinker with a variety of materials linked to the NGSS including basic electronics, 3D printing, Arduino, LilyPad, Makey-Makeys, small motors, green screens, and more. A core focus is adding interactivity into teaching and learning.

STEAM Laboratory II: Technology Course – Computer Programming for Hackers and Makers
This introductory computer programming course takes advantage of the rich creative environment of the Makerspace, A DIY collaborative learning lab where the community gathers to explore, tinker, create, and invent using a variety of tools and materials, to introduce students to the big ideas in computer science and computational thinking. Students develop the skills and competencies they need to carry out their own physical computing projects through project-based learning. 

The Makerspace is stocked with programmable components that students will incorporate into their Next Generation Science Standards aligned projects including: Raspberry Pis, Arduinos, microbits, and Mindstorm Robotics. Continuing the program’s emphasis on design thinking and the design process, students will propose their own team-based programming projects and pursue revisions which iteratively incorporate more computer programs technical sophistication. Students will begin with visual programming languages that are popular for teaching children and adolescents (e.g. Scratch, Blockly, Mindstorms LABView), and then move to text-based languages that are appropriate to their goals (e.g. Javascript, Python, C++).

Master of Arts Track

This track is for candidates who hold a bachelor’s degree or 30 credits in one of the science disciplines, and are seeking a Master of Arts and initial teacher New York certification (grades 7-12) in biology, earth science, chemistry or physics.
