Abstract

INSIGHT, an innovate graduate STEM Fellowship Program integrates sensor technology and computer science within in a K-12 standards-based science, technology, and engineering curricula. Graduate STEM Fellows are teamed with science, technology, and physical education teachers for two years to carry out hands-on classroom activities utilizing technology and engineering practice with a focus on the use of sensors, computing, and information technology aligned with K-12 state curriculum standards. One of the projects main goals is the establishment of sensor, computing, and information technology as a foundational high school skill by accelerating the integration of sensor technology content into K-12 classrooms. This project encourages participation in engineering and technology from a wider, more diverse group of students from rural Kansas. This paper shares detailed examples of summer institute and academic-year K-12 activities that have been successful. It also provides a preliminary assessment of the project.
