Dr. Veronica I. Ent, associate professor and chair of the Saint Vincent College Education Department, and Dr. Robert J. Michalow, assistant professor in education and director of K-12 and secondary education, are co-authors of an article, STEMing Back: Early American Agriculturally-Based Elementary Science as a Model for Today, in the March/April 2013 issue of The Agricultural Education Magazine.
“Although science, technology, engineering and math have made significant advancements in the past 60 years, the focal points of today’s STEM education have been evident in our instructional pedagogy as early as the 1940s,” the authors noted. “While today’s elementary STEM education is still evolving, the early connection of disciplines, including agriculture, for elementary students have opened doors to a more meaningful and seamlessly blended curriculum in the present day.”
