The 21st Century Classroom

New podcast episode:
from STEM learner to teacher

Meet Ian. Ian’s a senior at Essex High School, and he’s not just enrolled in the STEM Academy there, he’s also teaching it.

In this episode of the podcast, research fellow Mark Olofson talks with Ian about how he went from learning about STEM, to teaching it, and why robotics is so much more fun to build than talk about.

“In middle school I was not sure AT ALL what I was gonna be when I was older. So that’s the interesting thing, with the transition to high school that changed so much.”
