Teacher Megumi Guillaume on STEM3 Academy's Project-Based Learning Model
STEM3 Academy science teacher Megumi Guillaume is working with biology students to test for the presence of sugars and enzymes in Jell-o. But the project doesn't end there. Guillaume is planning out how she can incorporate the chemically treated gelatin into a math assignment that will culminate with a collaborative art project.
"In the olden-days it was just subject based only, but the way the brain is, everything is supposed to be fused together and so now that STEM is actually identified as project-based, for me at least, it’s perfect," Guillaume says, "I can take any subject and use any medium and mesh it together to create different kinds of projects."
