Tips for Encouraging Collaborative STEM Work
  • Talk with youth using positive language to create a collaborative learning environment.
  • Give youth opportunities to solve problems or answer questions in groups or pairs.
  • Encourage youth to talk to each other and model how youth can collaborate together. When working on STEM, it should be noisy!
  • Give youth real world examples of collaboration in STEM. For example, how scientists and engineers work together to solve problems.
