X-STEM All Access Status Update Season 4

Overview

X-STEM All Access is a free on-demand conference series for middle and high schoolers designed to get students excited about STEM.

Season 4 – presented by the U.S. Air Force and the U.S. Space Force – includes ten FREE episodes showcasing the exciting careers and inspiring personal journeys of diverse STEM role models.  Each 30-minute episode features a STEM role model telling their story through a lively Q&A session with a fellow STEM professional.

Episodes were released throughout the school year and are available on-demand to view anytime. Many educators registered their classrooms to view the series. The average number of student viewers per educator has more than doubled to 35 from 17 in prior seasons.

In season 3 we introduced NGSS and CASEL aligned lesson plans to accompany each episode. These educator-designed lesson plans have been downloaded 9,550 times as of September this year.

What People Are Saying

“I love the X-STEM lesson activities. They allow my students to be interactive and relate the lesson content to real world applications!”
Educator from Baltimore, MD

Lesson plans are an “awesome opportunity” and an “excellent source of information and knowledge…!”
 Homeschool Parents from Bowie, MD & Willards, MD

“The X-STEM program was a great opportunity to expose our scholars to careers in the STEM field and many have shown interest in joining coding clubs and explore computer science classes at our school.”
Educator from Northridge, CA

“I love the X-STEM All Access video series because it promotes STEM fields for students. The format makes it accessible to students who may not otherwise be able to have such an experience. In addition, students who have interest in certain topics (in this series Engineering) they can watch multiple times (in class and with the link). Knowing there is trivia at the end ensures students are attentive so that they can best answer the questions. I look forward to more series in the future.”
Educator from Philadelphia, PA

“As a homeschool family, having access to renowned scientists, educators, and leaders in science has created bridges between a dream and a goal. The speakers are highly passionate about their field of study which makes their presentations engaging. Thank you for the inspiration!”
Homeschool Parent from Philadelphia, PA
