OKLAHOMA CITY - Open for Business Oklahoma members are offering free, virtual-based STEAM - science, technology, engineering, art and math - curriculum for Oklahoma teachers and parents.
The group's "Think Like an Engineer" series offers six interactive lessons that promote hands-on learning and critical thinking. The content is designed to help middle school students put textbook concepts into hands-on practice.
"Engineers keep critical infrastructure working in our towns and cities, from water treatment and electricity to bridge and highway safety. Sharing that knowledge with students helps inspire the next generation of engineers," said Scott Young, Open for Business Oklahoma member. "Open for Business Oklahoma members are dedicated to the communities where we work and live. From providing essential services to volunteering at public schools, we are proud to support our local teachers and students in the communities we call home."
The lessons include step-by-step instructions and teach concepts including weights and measures, how an arch supports a structure and other basic physics lessons.
