Curriculum Exchange: Integrating STEM with Local Community NeedsResearch shows that to linking engineering and the application of STEM content to contextswithin students’ local community can increase motivation to learn and interest in engineering.This curriculum exchange will provide tools and materials for teachers to work with students toidentify applications of STEM topics that address local community needs. These lessons can beused in any STEM course or as part of a larger project effort that engages students in addressingthese needs themselves for grades 5-12. Links to other curriculum materials that have beenadapted from a university course will also be provided.
