DESIGNING STEM KIOSKS: A STUDENT PROJECT THAT TEACHESSTEMWorks(STATE) is a collaborative partnership between the (City) Private Council and the(University). It is a million dollar initiative awarded by the U.S. Department of Labor. Themain emphasis of STEMWorks(STATE) is to help qualified high school students andunemployed workers find their paths to high-demand jobs in Science, Technology, Engineering,and Mathematics in central (State). In order to serve individuals with STEM interests inWorkOne locations, STEMWorks(STATE) created a “Kiosk System” in which speciallydesigned kiosks provide uninterrupted electronic communication about STEM jobs and helpindividuals decide on a path to a STEM career.With this in mind, the STEMWorks (STATE) team approached, (Author) who currently teachesthree-dimensional design classes for Interior Design and Architectural Technology Departmentsat the (University) for designing the kiosk shell. (Author) mentioned that this would be anexcellent student project; therefore, designing the kiosk shell was assigned to (Class Number andName) students, who are mostly sophomore-level Interior Design students, as an in-semesterstudent assignment.At the end of the project, students of this class presented their designs to WorkOne and theSTEMWorks(STATE) team. With the help of Classroom Response Systems (also known as“clickers”), the team anonymously voted for the best design.After the selection, the winning student design was further modified for the manufacturability by(Author). After the final approval from the STEMWorks(STATE) team, the final designdrawings were sent to private contractors. A total of 12 kiosks were built to date and placed inWorkOne locations. They are now serving qualified individuals who are interested in STEMcareers in central (State).
