Women in Technology and Trades (WiTT) STEM Kits
What are WiTT STEM Kits?
A curriculum kit looks at how ideas concepts and ideas in science, engineering, math, and technology work together to help students engage with STEM based curriculum and virtualizations in small achievable tasks.These kits are designed in concert with Women in Technology and Trades students at Mohawk College to ensure that the kits are interesting and appealing to a broad range of students.
Each kit provides guidance on the materials needed, suggested activities, and advice for both faculty and students on what the kit will help students to learn, and how to start using the kit. Where possible, curriculum targets for appropriate age groups and skill levels will be identified for each kit, which can be used to demonstrate, guide project work, or enable independent study for age appropriate levels.
