Fostering STEM literacy through a tabletop wind turbine environmental science laboratory activity.Journal of Environmental Studies (2015)
Increasingly, national education policy is focusing on improving science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) literacy by using energy as a subject matter. In particular, The Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS 2014) identified energy as an issue that collectively relates the principles of science, technology, engineering, and math for students. Learning about energy, especially alternative energy, is much broader than STEM as it also connects a current issue to environmental impacts, the economy, and society—the three pillars of sustainability.
