You can be a scientist! Begin building your scientific identity as a Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) professional, developing the specific knowledge, thinking and learning skills and strategies, and habits of mind necessary to have a successful career in STEM. Working individually and in teams, students will learn and use skills and strategies to investigate and solve scientific scenarios, practicing the ways that scientific thinking is used to solve problems, and develop the critical thinking ability necessary to be successful in future STEM courses. The skills and knowledge you will gain in this course will be demonstrated through the production of scientific presentations and an e-portfolio that will show your new knowledge, skills and abilities.
