STEM and Story The powerpoint from the NCCE 2016 conference
This collection of stories all meet the following criteria:
- They embody the qualities and skills we associate with STEM work.
- They are all written for students (4-6 grade) and tested by classes of the same age.
- They are all “mostly true” (the grown up way of saying I am lying a little.) Thus the Heading 90%
- All have been marked (with superscript) so that anyone following along to try and find the lies will know where to start looking.
