Welcome to Rocky Fork STEM! My name is Mrs. Meredith.
About STEM: STEM education is an interdisciplinary approach to learning where rigorous academic concepts are coupled with real-world lessons as students apply science, technology, engineering, and mathematics in contexts that make connections between school, community, work, and the global enterprise enabling the development of STEM literacy and with it the ability to compete in the new economy. (Tsupros, 2009) - You can learn more about STEM in the resources page.
About Rocky Fork STEM: Rocky Fork STEM is an enrichment class in the Exploratory Department. Students will be given challenges that are appropriate to their grade level Science standards. They will need to work in groups of 4 and use the Engineering Design Process to solve real world problems.
About Me: I have been in the Middle Tennessee area since 2000. I graduated from Blackman High School and graduated with a B.S. for Engineering Technology with a minor in Computer Science from Middle Tennessee State University. I spent 11 years in Industry practicing Engineering, Quality, Management and Marketing. In 2017, I decided to follow my passion in spreading STEM education into the middle school arena. I am very excited to start this journey and look forward to working with your students.
